New Hole,† Hazel Sike. †††††††SD 664819.
One of the few sunny days last year, Mike Taylor and myself dug in Hazel Sike. †Result: One hole which collapsed with yours truly going to the pub till next time.
As a change from working at the
farm and a flood on the 3rd. of February we walked over to find that
a large hole had appeared under the aforementioned collapse. Heart pounding at
the double I made a drop of some 12 feet followed by loose boulders into a
chamber of hanging death. On investigation this proved to be about 15 feet in
diameter with water sinking in the right-hand downstream corner.
Further down the valley is Molly Dot, one of Herbertís many finds. Well, Mike & I decided there must be some connection between the two. Molly Pot had been given the usual Red Rose slap-happy dig technique and was said to end in a very loose 25 foot pitch.
To date, you cart get Jim down to the area of this pitch. Well thatís what is reputed to be there. We are still digging.
