Pennant Lead Mine (United Kingdom)


Evidence exists referring to workings from the early 18th century. Mineral returns for the 19th century indicate the mine was highly productive in lead,silver and barytes and had a substantial number of employees (Burt et al 1992). The workings trend along an east to west vein. There is a deep square stone-lined engine shaft to the south of the well preserved engine house at SJ08777534. A further two shafts are to the west of the Engine Shaft, across the lane at SJ08817534 and SJ08837533. A collapsed shaft appears as a circular depression at SJ08677537. The New Engine Shaft at SJ08627540 is unfenced and appearing from amid rubble is an iron A-frame, which would have been part of the pumping mechanism. A collapsed shaft lies at SJ08587537 and other smaller shafts or trials located on the site at SJ08547536, SJ08537536, SJ08507537, SJ08457541, SJ08457537. The mine closed in 1891 and was re-opened in 1913 for barium minerals, but was abandoned in 1920.
