Parked Away from the Mine Entrance

This Looks Like the Right Place

My Ride Awaits me from Doug the Dumper Man

WHEE! This is a Real Treat

Nearly at the Mine with The Corbett Farragon Hill in the Distance on the Left

Doug the Dumper Man Drops me off and Goes Back to Work

One the Catchment Pools near the Mine

The Track Ends Abruptly with Farragon Hill Dead Ahead

Farragon Hill Getting Nearer 

To the South Smoke coming from a Ghost Train or Burning Back the Heather on a Grouse Moor
