Ridge Hill Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)


The mine is reached by following the track leading North from Hagley Farm. To the west is the shaft, now blocked with scrap iron and beginning to crown. Adjacent to this is the base of the winding engine and concrete footings for processing machinery. A vertical girder construction next to the winding engine was associated with a farm generator operated by a gas engine earlier this century. The incline shaft is believed to be sunk in the floor of the adit, the entrance of which is assumed to be represented by the collapse depression a short distance south-east of the shaft. An adjacent adit is on a branch vein and only goes in a few yards.
