Browngill Top / Longholehead Top Level (01/08/15)

Back to Browngill Top Level Index

A quick trot into the plantation via the spoil heap soon saw us find the adit for Browngill Top Level. The level is very shallow for the first 200m or so and some of the roof has fallen in, but it is open. Further along there are some depressions which might indicate that the roof of the level has collapsed, but it would be a relatively minor exercise in digging it out to gt in. There is a fair bit of water coming out of it and it could easily be lowered with a bit of digging and dredging. Dotted around the level are numerous bell pits. The level does connect with the Longholehead Whimsey and that possibly might be another way in.
