Left hand passage dig .
Bog , Dave Cowley May 2017
After yet another setback at Dead Ahead, with water filling the dig face , we welcomed an excuse to check out a new lead.
During a previous tourist trip I noticed a silt bank just before the sump in left hand passage .
It is very similar to the Paternity dig, with a potential tube coming in at a bend in the passage near a sump.
The first trip hit a solid wall at the back, at roof level, but Dave stuck a crowbar through the silt on the right hand side, just as the pub alarm went off.
On our return this week ,we have lowered the dig face again ,and I have have high hopes of a passage beyond ,although it's size is very restricted at the moment .
A large amount of water comes in ,on the beds in the roof at this point, which keeps the sump filled up . No doubt if it goes we will probably hit mine at some point . The Bowling Green car park would be better so fingers crossed.
