Random Mine of the Day : Clitters Mine Gunnislake (Skinner Site)

Wandering through Gunnislake old Clitters mine this morning, I was taken by the windows in this roofless pumphouse. I believe this was last used just after the first world war, although I think it's been repaired a bit in the interim. The shaft next to it is supposed to be 505meters deep - although sadly, I can't drop a pebble in and listen hopefully for the splash, as there's a very sturdy grill over it. Probably just as well really.
