Far Gatten Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)

There is an open adit on the side of the hill but it has collapsed a short distance inside. On the hillside above to the north-west is a blocked shaft which may have connected to the adit. Another open adit, north of a track, only goes a short distance. There are remains of open workings and collapses to the west but no trace of an adit supposed to be next to the road.
