The Dark Cavern Series

The Artist Discovered the dark cavern and gained access to this fantastic mine and made these drawings. The mine is situated under Dudley castle and travels underground all the way to the Black Country museum. The mine was built on two levels and incorporated a canal system which connected to wrens nest mine. This canal access is now blocked and most of the canal constructions are derelict. There was also a Victorian theatre constructed in the 1800’s half way into the mining construction. Munchinson held concerts here for Victorian visitors.
