Pindale End Mine - Lower Shaft

Entrance of Pindale End Mine - Lower Shaft


No access agreement in place, but access is permitted. Lower (climbing) shaft is in the overgrown triangle of land opposite Pindale Farm campsite, adjacent to a power pole and is 14m deep - almost uniquely it has steps built into the ginging, but these do not reach the bottom - do not attempt to free-climb! Metal lid (may be hidden in brambles) that swivels on one bolt. There is currently no backup anchor in place other than the power pole - take great care opening the lid.
