Surveys of some of the mines found in the Harptree area.

The mines above are located in a small quarry opposite Eastwood Manor. There is an active badger sett close by and badgers are known to use the larger mine particularly the southern most passages.

Another mine located in Harptree Combe, this one is towards the top of the combe. The description above was written for the Belfry Bulletin in 2005 but was one of a number of articles that remained unpublished. It was not included in the Mendip Cave Registry Archive (MCRA) at the time either, although it had been submitted.

The entrance to the mine described above as photographed in December 2012. There are a number of features in the area around the mine that suggest there was some small scale mining activity although there has been some considerable disturbance of the ground from badgers.
