Harnisha Burn (Bollihope) Lead Mine (United Kingdom)


A level and at least one shaft and an opencut (98553485) alongside Harnisha Burn. The Level was owned by the Bacon family and were worked in partnership with William Blackett and heirs until 1791 when it was bought outright along with 4 others for £640 by Thomas Wentworth Blackett.
The level was reworked for fluorspar in the 1970's. It is still open for a fair distance and small sections of stope are accessible from the level.
