Box Freestone Mine - Pottering About (01/10/05).

Back to Box Freestone Mine Trip Index

A visit back to the Box Mines with some friends that have not been before. We did the central survey route with detours to see the Wind Tunnel, past it and then to the Fan Door and back out along the Support Passage.

We also used this trip to test out Charlies flash powder idea for illuminating large areas such as the Cathedral. The flash powder works very well, but we need to work out a way of gauging how much to use as it is very easy to get white out with a relative small amount. The results that we got from these tests where excellent and it is the way forward for illuminating large areas. A mix of modern digital and old fashioned photography techniques.

On the way back out we came across the 'robots', this time they seemed to have had a druidic re-incarnation.
