With Alex ‘the Belfry Boy’, the ‘Lord Taviner’ and at long last making a welcome reappearance Graham ‘Jake’ Johnson.

With a team assembled it was decided to have a good clear-out and the tripod was erected. Started by removing the spoil created last weekend at the ‘T’ junction – mostly rocks and gravel all the way out to the surface. The hoped for opening of other options has been successful and it seems there is a draught emanating from the right as well as the left hand side. We will have to concentrate our efforts on one side, probably stay to the left, but make sure nothing gets blocked. After the ‘T’ was cleared we moved back to clear all the stacked spoil at the base of the entrance shaft out to the surface.
