300ft mineshaft opens up in Cornwall garden
« on: March 19, 2016, 12:30:57 PM »
What is the weird shadow in the bottom of the shaft at 2.15 on the video? it looks like something large moved in to the shaft from the right side at the bottom. Is this just the angle of the camera?

It looks so clean at the bottom for all that stuff to have fallen in.

Estimated to be at least 300ft deep, the huge hole was once part of an 18th century tin mine and opened up unexpectedly while surveyors were checking the property for ground stability.

"There was nothing there at all that shows there was a shaft," said Stuart Dann of Mining Eye.

"Both houses nearby are empty, which is a very good job. It is easy to see the woods, fields and houses and assume nothing was there. If you go back to 1750, the area was completely different."

Local man Mark Thomas, who managed to capture some impressive aerial video footage of the mineshaft using a remote-controlled drone (below), described the hole as "truly massive."

"It’s approximately 300 feet to water and god knows how deep from there," he said.

I think it's the water moving after being hit by the rock (or something like that) that was thrown at 2:12.

Thanks for responding, wish i could see it better, are the things flying around bats? If those are bats maybe the hole opens onto a tunnel.

They don't look like bats, bats have a very characteristic way of flying.
