Old Ash Mine

Eleven cavers met near Oaker for an evening trip into Old Ash Mine, a gated venue in Northern Dale with a maze of passages which can also be entered via a 50m shaft (and pendulum) in the top of the western hill top above the entrance. It's a few years since we last visited Old Ash and split into two parties with one group dropping the top shaft, while the other entered the mine via the lower adit.
