Millican’s wheel pit

Incident number 14 of 2021:-
02/06/2021, 10:04, Millican’s wheel pit, SD287992
Another lovely Lakes day when Cumbria Police called us about reports of a lamb having fallen into an old mine engine wheel pit near Kernel Crag. A small team went up there and abseiled into the pit to inspect both the wheel pit and its drain. Nothing found. We spoke to a local who had reported it, and who showed us a photo of it, and to the farmer, who had not rescued it either. Mystery unsolved, we looked around the local area lamblessly, and then returned to base.
4 volunteer members attended this incident, which took 3 hours.
