Sandford Hill, Sandford.
|NGR:||ST 4301 5937|
Marked on the SMCC Survey as SMCC-3, this small mine working, entered by a 7.5m shaft at the foot of Sandford Hill, intercepts a significant natural chamber 6m high, 7m wide and 15m long. It contains evidence of the mining techniques used and some good dog-tooth crystals. There also appears to be a significant colony of common newts in the vicinity of the entrance. The mine was rediscovered in 2005 by Dave Upperton of WCC who named it in honour of his friend, Lt. Tony King, of 849 Naval Air Squadron, who was killed in the 2003 Iraq War.
