Nick Knolls (Knick Knolls) Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)


The engine house has been completely flattened and is difficult to distinguish. All underground entrances are now blocked but were explored in 1965. No.1 Adit was explored for 50yds to a stope that was 25ft high with signs of galena at the top. A timbered winze 10ft deep was present about 10yds in. A nearby open stope was descended for 30ft to a level with a collapsed entrance. This went for a short distance to a blind heading. A side passage to the right went for a short distance with four branches, all blind. Further down the hillside is a collapsed drainage level which issues water.
