A re-visit with BIG torch and wellies, this time we went as far as the second side shaft, took a few shots some of which are below and some more on flickr
Me and Tinypixi went in, a bit of lifting and shoving to get her on top of the wall climbing in, climbing back out was far less lady-like :D :D
The big torch, http://www.urbexforums.co.uk/showthread.php?t=571 , was good for general light and looking at stuff but I wouldn't really think of it for photography as its a bit too big to twirl around to evenly light paint. An interesting experiment all the same and I'm bound to use it again, shame I didn't take the 5W Fluro too!

The Portal shot:
Looking back to the portal, lighting from the blooming big torch!:
Idiots with torches:
The Tunnel-Elephant:
Some Lovely Calcification:
Second Side Tunnel, lighting from a couple of LED torches and the Blooming big torch in the side arch:
This was probably the first real lighting shot with the big torch, I'd have to say that the little LED torches are far easier to get controlled results with:
Looking down the first side tunnel, you can see daylight at the end:
Side tunnel and ventilation shaft:
Straight up a ventilation shaft, you could see the capping off at the top:
