This trip was with two other NAMHO representatives, Dave Linton and Kevin Baker. Shropshire Caving and Mining Club had Clive Mine open for other visitors and they kindly allowed us to explore on our own. We started by dropping down the 30m ore chute to the bottom level and crawling/walking up that in each direction from the Well Shaft. Then back on the main level we explored to the far end and back including climbing up some rather dodgy ropes to an old level running over the 19th century working. There's another trip report about Clive Mine but I've loaded a couple of representative pictures from that trip here.
