THE DCC TIMELINE

Two men lost in West Mine

1929

At Alderley Edge…

Two men went into West Mine in the spring of 1929 and were not found until the early autumn. It is thought that they got into a high level passage above Chain Shaft, lost their lights and were unable to climb down. After this, the mines remained open although West Mine had a door fitted for a while.
