Rock bottom - (23/04)

A closer view of the original water exit tunnel and current sump and pump keeping the site nice and dry - only a small amount of water is tricking through the original wall and the lower end of the excavation is well below river level now.

Amanda and Chris sifting through the mud and debris from the mill fire looking for anything that might be of interest !

The last couple of days of needing heavy duty digging equipment with the JCB's 'pecker' being put to great use in chipping away at the bedrock (gritstone).

Closer view of the exit tunnel which does eventually lead out to the river

Its a long way up... over 150ft from the bottom of the excavation to the house above the Torrs.
