I'd forgotten what a cracking trip Merlin's Mine can be. Nine of us met amid some quite heavy sleaty showers on the road up to Eyam for a trip into Merlin Mine. The plan was to try to find the way through from Gimli's Dream to the foot of the Eyam Dale Shaft, so, while everybody was sorting themselves out, Christine and I climbed up the slippery bank to Eyam Dale Shaft and rigged it with a rope and a ladder in case we were successful.

Arrived at the Chapel and sat talking to Matt who was with Aberystwyth for ages – no one was stirring so I decided to get my computer and start logging some library books. That did it – everyone got up so I put the computer away again.
