Batholes (West Tankerville, Old Batholes, Lower Batholes) Lead Mine (United Kingdom)


Brickiln Level is open and issues into a concrete pit, often full of water. It is brick lined and goes 20ft to a mud blockage, which has been penetrated 50 yards further to another blockage. On the hillside above is a collapsed shaft (4) which corresponds to the blockage. Further up the hillside to the left is Upper Level. This is open but all other shafts in the near vicinity are collapsed. There is a hole into a collapsed adit (6) just to the south. By heading up the hillside, the old tramway connecting Nick Knolls, Batholes and East Roman Gravels Mine is reached. Near this is a large conial depression, probably the remains of Gin Ring Shaft. At the crest of the rise are a series of exploratory opencast workings.

To the west is the capped Milne Shaft, associated with the Leigh Level, and nearer the road is a flooded shaft surrounded by trees. This is flooded to just below surface level and might have been a ventilation shaft for an old shallow drainage level. An open shaft to the south-west is probably associated with workings on the Gate Level Vein.
