Crawstone Ironstone Mine Iron Mine (United Kingdom)


An open level behind a house leads to a series of side passages which have been worked in the longwall method. Although there is a narrow seam of coal, this mine was worked mainly for ironstone. Due to the strata and single entrance, there is a great danger of carbon dioxide AND Methane building up in the workings and exploration should not be attempted without some form of gas detection.
The entrance is in a Private garden and permission to enter MUST be obtained.
