Hanging Flat

Finally back home from the day from hell I headed out looking for an epic mine (which I found but needed a ladder) so I headed to Hanging Flat. The entrance is very dodgy and a tight squeeze but once inside it opens out.
An early 20th century lead mine worked for its fluorspar and galena content.
Before it was "sealed" tv programs such as Peak Practice and Dr Who used the mine as a set. Past here there is a collapse which I wasn't going anywhere near
The cart wheels are seized and it wouldn't roll :( Thanks for looking
