Gank Hole (Lathkill Dale Level) Ochre Mine (United Kingdom)


Level entrance was on the north side of the valley. Nothing now remains. The vein can be traced obliquely up the valley side to the north west. In the early 70s the mine was still accessible via a couple of small holes on the hillside but these have long since been lost. See PDMHS Bulletin Vol 6 No 6 Dec 1977 for survey and description.
