Might be best to go in just one at a time, the water crashing down at the end can be amazing. It does look dangerous with the water pouring down through the brickwork.

I was a member of the team who took the picture on the website posted above. We did this and "old smokey" on the same day as they are both short and both so close. Do old smokey first and then was all the soot off in the well
I went to do old smokey a few weeks ago but there was a terrible stench of gas, how far in does the well go (ish)?

It's Dark and Hell is Hot........

Only goes a couple of hundred metres or so, there was a huge sheet of lead in the pool at the end where maybe somebody was meant to do some repairs .
