After the NAMHO Council Meeting at Nenthead, opportunities were taken for representatives to make several trips around the area. On the Saturday afternoon, I visited Middlecleugh and on the Sunday Rampgill. The pictures show these two trips. Brewery Shaft was rigged for the weekend by the Wirksworth Group.Below are a couple of shots taken in Middlecleugh which was interesting to a point but we never got out of the main haulage level. There are sumps and winzes which I know lead to other parts of the system.There are more pictures from this and the Middlecleugh trip in the gallery.
On the Sunday, the trip was in to Rampgill. The first part was down Brewery Shaft on the winch for a look around the bottom. Afterwards, I went into Rampgill level with Matt Clarke as far as the horse gin. The pictures show these two trips.
