Rock (Leeds Rock House, Rock House, South Bog) Mixed Mine (United Kingdom)


The remains of the dressing floors and a circular pond are present just below the road. Two adits enter the hillside from here but both are blocked, although a stream of water issues from one of them. On the other side of the road, just below The Rock, is the open main shaft. This has been descended 220ft to water. A deep stope leads off 50ft down and, further down, a level leads off but it has not been entered as it is on the wrong side of the shaft for safe descent. At the bottom, levels lead off in both directions along a vein. A length of rising main protrudes from a sump at the shaft bottom. Just to the south-west of this shaft is a small collapsed shaft. The adjacent tips are very large with much galena.

A short distance towards Rock Cottage is another shaft blocked with rubbish and the adjacent building may have housed a winding engine. In the opposite direction, near the remains of another cottage, is a small blocked shaft.
