Permission visit. After much nagging to a friend of a friend, finally managed to blag a day down the pit. Can't name the place as they don't usually allow any photography down there, or in the unused buildings above, so most of it is pretty much unseen. So I converted my camera to steam power and once they were happy there was no danger with me blowing up the mine down I went. My first ever underground moochings and was a pretty decent day, until my camera had a massive tripod fall fail. Still have to go back as I didn't do the scrapyard where  they have with all the loco's n stuff. Pics-
 
First up the overground stuff -

That does look amazing, it must be quite a big mine with the longwall shearer. Any idea how thick the seam is?
