Old mine shaft in Wilderswood
There are many old coal and clay mine workings in the vicinity of Wilderswood and higher up on Winter Hill. This one was well hidden with a capping and only located by a knowledgeable friend pointing it out. No exact position given to protect the curious or the just plain stupid.
