First went underground in the early 60's, but it wasn't until the late 60's early 70's when most frequent visits were undertaken.
Main areas of interest were Alston, Nenthead, Hilton and Carrock - long before the age of digital photographs we did take occassional slides which have since been copied. Felt like real exploration no maps to reference, sketches were made with compass directions and 'paces' - took several trips down Smallcleugh till we discovered the ballroom.
By the mid 70's with a young family most exploration had come to an end and have since had occassional visits down some of the easier mines with family and friends.

I have added some of the sketches from my field notes and a few old photos that I do hope you enjoy, especially if you were also exploring the mines during that time
