Dalesman: This cache has been in need of care and maintenance for some time and as the owner has not responded to my note I am archiving it.

Guidelines:**"You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time - normally a few weeks - in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing."**

Geocache Description:

Small nano magnetic cache with log.

You will need to take the seat without the cage & dig down below the right shaft to find the cache.

You are looking for the Vane Tempest Colliery interpretive sculpture, Seaham. A sculpture by Michael Johnson. It is located opposite what were the old Vane Tempest Main Gates. The sculpture represents the skyline profile of the Vane Tempest Colliery buildings. Beyond the sculpture is a seat from where metal inlays on the ground represent the miles of tunnels that ran from the main shafts far below the sea-bed. Vane Tempest Colliery closed in June 1993.
