Knolls Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)


An adit 500 yards north-west of Squilver Farm has now collapsed. Another adit, 600 yards west of the farm, has an obvious spoil tip and can be entered by squeezing over a pile of earth at the entrance. It leads after 50 yards into a stope at right-angles to the adit, after passing through a fault plane halfway along. The strata on both sides of the fault appear to be red Longmyndian Sandstones. The stope is about 30 yards long and 40ft high. At its far end the barytes vein is replaced by a clay plug, along which an adit has been driven for a few yards to a blind heading.
