    Oh dear.

    It seems that the twat who has sealed off the lower access point is now preventing anyone from accessing the mine using the other entrance.

    He's apparently disputing that Oldfield Design own the land there too.

    He's up to something, the cock.

    Just with oral threats and by remonstrating with potential users, apparently.

    So you could still access it, but if he's correct in the position he has taken...

    Given that access hasn't been restricted in living memory; one wonders if there's a right of way through usage, a lot like a footpath. Added to that the dubious "ownership" -- who does own a mine? -- then it's probably what lawyers would call an interesting case. But what do I know!
