New Venture (Stiperstones) Lead Mine (United Kingdom)

The entrance of Deep Level is gated but it is blocked by a fall a short distance inside, corresponding to a collapsed shaft on the hillside above. In the past, this adit has been explored to beyond the shaft until progress was halted by a further fall. There are the remains of mine buildings adjacent to the entrance.

There is an open air shaft in the wood to the north which has been explored to a blockage at 90ft. Just to the north-west of this is a grilled adit which goes in 15ft to a right turn and is then blocked.

Further up the valley is a shaft which has been capped with concrete. This has been descended 300ft to water at the bottom and is assumed to have led to Deep Level. Adjacent to the top is the base of the winding engine. There are several collapsed adits and buildings in the valley leading up to the col, where there is a collapsed shaft and tips. There is now no trace of an adit found here in 1960 which led to a 40ft deep stope. A short adit at the bottom of this led to a deep winze which was not descended.
