Warren is leading 3 meets at The Lucy Tongue Level, Greenside Mine, Glenridding. The first is on 21st January 2018 and the second is 28th January 2018 and the 3rd is 4th February 2018. There is limited capacity on both events and these tend to book up very quickly. Contact Mark Hatton to see if any places are still available. Further details on Facebook. Follow the website link above.
Meet grade is “Easy” as no technical requirements. However there is a slightly awkward entrance (down a large diameter concrete pipe), the level is wet in places (usually less than welly depth) and this is an underground walk of almost 2 miles.
MEET AT 9.30am at the road side car parking in Glenridding (just beyond the entrance to the main car park). We will then car share from there up to the mine entrance, to start there at 10am. Please check the weather forecast and Road Conditions before setting out.
Note – mine exploration is a high-risk sport and it is not possible to reduce all risks to a low level. CATMHS seek to support exploration in a safe manner while recognising that significant risks will remain and the safety of the activity will ultimately depend on the ability of the group and participants to take sensible actions to ensure exploration is conducted with a reasonable margin of safety. However accidents and incidents can happen and everyone taking part in this event do so at their own risk.
