Visiting Corsham Mine

I recently visited the Lovell sandstone mines under Corsham. Concerns have been raised about the level of noise coming from within the mines, especially ahead of proposals to build 150 more houses (along Bath Road) directly underneath.

I share the concerns of the Corsham Town Council and local residents that the proposed site is not appropriate for new housing – the mines are only a few metres below the surface in some areas and the noise levels are already quite high.
