Fireset Shaft


Shaft on top of the small cliff by the lay-by halfway up Eyam Dale on the west side.

No known access restrictions. Obvious parking spots close to base of crags and in lay-bys in the dale and next to electricity sub-station at foot of Eyam Dale. DO NOT BLOCK the sub-station entrance. Take care, as area is notorious for thefts from parked vehicles.
