Myttonsbeach (Hill Sett) Lead Mine (United Kingdom)

There is an open adit on top of a large tip and this goes in for 50yds to a blind heading. It is connected to an open shaft further up the hillside which is offset and appears to continue below water level. An 8" pumping main is present and this may have been operated by an engine sited in the building ruins just to the east of the tip.

Further up the valley, there is a grilled open shaft on the hillside to the left. This is inclined and has been descended 60ft to a choke of decaying refuse. There is a possibility of it having led to workings beneath the valley floor. An adit on the opposite side of the valley is now choked with debris and flooded but has been explored for 80yds to a blind heading. The body of a tipper truck lies just down the valley from the first adit.
