Snailbeach Lead Mine, near Minsterley, Shropshire

A pleasant exchange trip via the Classic and Scenic routes, after a BCA Council meeting the previous day for some members of the party. A great place for training novices Dea and Steve on SRT, who both did really well. A trip to the Stiperstones pub rounded the day off with its excellent beer, food, tea and biscuits! Thanks to SCMC.

Mike Noble on the way back up.
