Towards Stowe's Hill Minions

This old track runs parallel with the deep seam of copper and tin ore that was taken from the old Clanacombe Mine behind us and on up, and under, the distant quarry we can see hewn and blasted from the side of Stowe’s Hill before us. The hillside here is pockmarked with mineshafts, the latest of which appeared as a small hole in the main track leading to the quarry in 2010 and is now a gaping chasm which has swallowed the entire width of the track and more and falls away into the 17 levels of underground workings going down to sea level, 1,000 feet below.
