Calcot Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)


This mine was worked in conjunction with Cliffdale Mine. An adit on the north-east side of the valley goes for 100 yards but may be blocked with sheep. Lower down, on the opposite side of the valley, is a short level leading to a stope that has broken through to the surface. The total depth is about 70ft, split into three levels by floors supported on stemples. The bottom of the stope is partly flooded.
