Accessible underground workings on the Alltycrib Hill
are an open gunnis down to the deep adit, Wikinsons Level - an easy walk
in but with a winze down through about 180 feet of stope workings, and
Myddletons Level. The latter leads to a total collapse at Western Engine
shaft but is a fine example of a coffin type level.

was dug out by members of WMS in 2005 and consists of concrete steps and
short ladders. Partial thigh deep wading in deep adit to reach horse gin,
optional deeper water towards the portal. The adit drains through an 8
inch pipe at y Wern where there is no access.
Easy walk in, very
shallow water. level branches with right fork leading to Felix's Shaft,
the site of the 1910 working where there was a powered winch. Then
eventually a little maze at Steel Ore Lode stopes. Left branch leads
through a concrete lined crawl to the run in Western Engine Shaft. A winze
on the right is an SRT trip of about 160 feet through stopes . Not on the
