Longcliffe Mine

A group of TSG members are working on the construction of a new shaft top for Longcliffe Mine on behalf of the National Trust. This work has been approved by the DCA, and has been made possible by a bursary from Natural England for remedial surface work. The shaft blockage has now been completely removed and extracted to surface, and a new hillock has been built to accommodate almost 6m of twinwall pipe, sunk vertically within the spoil. The shaft top has been created, with a custom grille, courtesy of Natural England, and full access to the workings will eventually be restored.
