Moorfurlong Mine, Bradwell - Phil Wolstenholme
I'm hopefully going back next Monday with Sam T and Andy Tickle to try and get some photos - should be easier now I know the layout, and that large chamber will look really good I reckon. I didn't see that dig that Collum did, but Sam said they found original miner's candles down there.
We also went for a crawl down the bottom end again, and Sam showed me the Eldon dig that opened up a substantial new section of workings, with pickwork aplenty, veins of what I claim without doubt to be Blue John, clay mortaring with miner's fingerprints all over it and a candle stub. Sam told me there was a clay pipe down there too, but that's clearly been pilfered, as it ain't there no more. There was a strong draught in the bottom chamber, with a wall of deads the only possible culprit, so it could probably be extended further if anyone could be bothered. There's so much backfill in there it probably would go all the way to Bagshaw if it could be removed.
