We are a group of friends that have been exploring abandoned
mines since the 1980's, predominately in the small village of Nenthead in
Cumbria on Alston moor. We are a society and members of
NAMHO. This web site is all
about our exploration, including some basic history of the mines. To see the
mines that we have been to and our trip index, see Mines /
Mine exploration is dangerous and you should only
attempt it with a club or an experienced group if you have not done it before.
See Links for details of clubs and organisations that
you can contact.
If you are a mine explorer feel free to
contact us for information. We will be glad to help
if we can and to place any links to relevant web sites. All the information on
this web site is a result of reading, surfing, talking, doing and
