Sleepy Hollow mines

One of the main features at Sleepy Hollow outside PE is the old abandoned silver and lead mines dating back to the late 1700's.  When we go and camp at Sleepy Hollow we normally take our strong torches along to go for a walk down the old mine shaft.  Last time I was there I didn't venture too far in though as I forgot my torch and there were a couple of bats sweeping in and out in the late afternoon.  Without a torch one never knows what else you'll encounter so I rather stuck around the entrance taking photos.

  1. Ergh, I feel for people who have to work underground, even today. But in those days, earning your livelihood would have been fraught with danger!
