Neptune Mine

Eight of us met at what used to be a lay-by at the head of Creswell Dale on the A623 near Wardlow Mires for a trip into Neptune Mine. Unfortunately, the old lay-by has been replaced with a length of hatched white lines and angry words saying "Keep Clear", so, not wanting to get ticketed, we transferred our parking arrangements to the car park of the nearby Yonderman's Cafe (which was closed). In future, when visiting Neptune Mine, it may be better to park on the lay-by on Mires Lane, which leads from the A623 to Litton, and then walk down into the dale from there.
