Jacob’s Dream Mine.  After A bit of bush-whacking, this is a very interesting mine which breaks into a natural cavern. Some unspoilt formations due to relatively light footfall and well known for bats.

original caption from c1892 that read “Paul Chandler points out the way to Jacob’s Dream, “Way up there, I think”, before the group set off.”
