Hazard Mine

Entrance of Hazard Mine


block No access to this site allowed.

100m south of the track from Dirtlow Rake to Eldon Quarry just west of the old Hollandtwine Mine site. No access agreement in place. 79m-deep engine shaft covered by an old iron grille with a slot cut into it. Take at least one scaffold tube for a belay. 12mm backup bolt anchor nearby, but hanger required. Do NOT trust the grille bars to stand on or use alone for a belay - they are ancient.
