Foxholes Lead Mine (United Kingdom)


Foxhole Vein can be followed north-west from Old Grit to Foxhole Shaft near the corner of the next field. This shaft is now blocked and, from it, the large tip surrounding Foxhole Drawing Shaft can be seen in the distance. This shaft has not been inspected closely but, from the large amount of farmyard scrap surrounding it, it is assumed to be blocked. It was open in 1960 when it was estimated to be 200ft deep. Climbing Shaft would appear to be in the middle of the farm, so is also assumed to be blocked.
