Gatten (Brownhills, Gatten Lodge, Gatting, Gatting Lodge) Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)

A 15ft adit used to lead to the top of the main shaft but it has been completely removed by reworking of the tips. The shaft itself has a concrete cap and it used to have the runners still in position for a double cage system. It has been descended 75ft to water. To the south is the base of the winding engine and concrete supports for the fuel tank. To the north is a brick magazine in excellent condition. Just to the east is the top of an open stope which has been partly filled and further east is the concrete cap of the incline shaft. The climbing shaft to the west of the road is filled.
