    Arrow Holme Bank Mine/Holme Hall Chert Mine Nov 2010

    In between doing other stuff, me and Neosea made like a couple of moles and had a look inside this place, like all underground stuff, its dark, its wet in places and new pack wall collapses are evident as we have been down 3 times now.
    The mines do actually join together underground so thes photos could be from either

    Holme Bank chert mine was opened in early 1800 and worked up to 1960. There are many workings within the site and it is notable for the large packwalls used to support the roof after the chert beds had been removed. It later became known as Smith’s Mine after a later owner who operated the mine, they also manufactured Davie blocks on the site for building and continued to do so on site up to about 1995.
