Fern Mine

Sandford Hill, Sandford.

NGR:ST 4292 5919
WGS84:51.32893, -2.82063
Length:6 m
Depth:4 m
Altitude:108 m

Located in a grassy clearing and marked on the SMCC Survey as SMCC-6, this horribly unstable 4m deep shaft yields a short horizontal passage ending in a collapse. It is also probably one of the sites mentioned in ACG Log Book No.2, page 42. It sits on an area of spoil, approximately 30m above the upper levels of the First Crossroads (east side) of Sandford Levvy.

Alternate Names: SMCC-6
