Nipstone (New Bog, Nipstone Bog, Nipstone Rock) Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)

Nipstone Level is on the west of the road with a large tip. It appears to be used as a water supply but it was described as collapsed on previous visits. It has been explored for 100 yards to a stope, in which the water level used to fluctuate by at least 60ft. This was surprising since the workings are drained by the Boat Level. The stope was descended during a dry period and a drop of 40ft led to a rubble slope ending in water, the chamber at this point being 15ft wide and 60ft high. The water was dived for 20ft to a 5ft square level leading off.

To the east of the road is a deep opencut but no apparent adits off. Further south is a collapsed adit.
