Brambles and significant barbed wire and warning about collapse of out mine workings as well as the cutting edge. Numerous yellow-box gas monitors in evidence which a local told us was due to an extensive coal seem fire beneath which resulted in the evacuation of local houses for more than 18 months.

Logged as couldn't find. But it was inaccessible due to dense vegetation, brambles, nettles and rolls of barbed wire. May return later with a machette. I had wondered why it had not been attempted up to now.
