My quick visit to the Coniston copper mines to check out the blue walls and the spot where a bomb was once found.
On our first day out climbing, my current boyfriend started reciting a tale of an assassination attempt that happened in the Coniston Copper mines in the mid-1990s
The Borrowdale Graphite Mine is not just any mine: it is the only graphite mine in England. Its dark tunnels on the hillside remind of its surprising history.
I am abseiling down into a graphite mine in Lake District on the wettest day of the summer. Why am I going underground again? I thought I figured out that I don't like dark tunnels.
Because of our poor senses in the dark, it is quite natural to be more alert in the dark. But some people are more anxious when the lights go out.
