Great pictures. Did you get under the coal drops or has it flooded even more?
cheers m8 at first i thought it was absbestos but thought surely they wouldnt leave it lying round the place

we got under the rail tracks and there was another staircase but it was flooded right to the top

I believe there were workmen there earlier in the year. When I went in May there was no-one, although the caterpillar tracks in the dirt were quite evident. It's a dead easy explore, worth going over now before it starts to get more difficult.
