THE DCC TIMELINE

Capping and clearing mines

1981-1988

At Alderley Edge…New capping on Bear Pit at Engine Vein

Engien Vein was capped in 1981 after the National Trust realised that it presented a considerable risk to public safety. It was added to the DCC's lease. In 1982, Brylow Mine was opened from the surface and in 1985 Square Shaft was cleared. This made it possible to relocate and re-open the entrance to the Hough Level below Stormy Point.
