Woodlands View is situated on a plot of land that has undergone many changes over the years.  It has been the site of factories, mining operations and farming.  Signs of this past history are all over the place if you know where to look.  One artifact we are lucky enough to have is an entrance tunnel of an old mine.  I have been told that this tunnel leads under the site and out onto the moor somewhere.  For safety reasons it has obviously been blocked up for a long time.  Not only is there a wall sealing the entrance but also a large pile of rock and rubble to stop careless explorers.  A couple of weeks ago Wal and I noticed some damage to the entrance which we obviously needed to repair a.s.a.p.  Whether the damage was caused by a combination of the weather and sheep, or by unwelcome visitors is unknown.  One of our future projects is to build a rover to investigate the tunnel as far as we can (no way are we letting people inside it!) so we took the opportunity to photograph the tunnel as far as our cameras could see.  The entrance is now safely sealed again but we know that tiny stalactites are growing slowly in the gloom.
