Ballyhickey Lead Mine (Ireland)

The Ballyhickey deposit was discovered by John Taylor & Co during the course of exploration to discover extensions of the Kilbricken lode. Most of the presently visible remains date from the period of operation by John Taylor & Co. between 1834 - 1840, although there is also a reference to the deposit being worked during the 1830s by Mr. Hugh Singleton of Quinville Abbey (and later of Hazelwood House, 1878: the local agent for John Taylor & Co.?). These include the remarkably well preserved chimney stack, built in 1837, and nearby stump ruin of a 20" Engine house.
