Sallies Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)

The site is marked by a small spoil tip and several concrete footings for buildings and machinery. The brick magazine is well preserved but the concrete cap of the shaft is split and beginning to tilt. The foundations of the headgear can still be seen. There appears to be a collapsed trial adit next to the shaft.

The main adit is open but blocked by a timber gate since it is used as water supply. It heads south-east for 60yds to a narrow vein. A short passage to the left ends in a blind heading, while to the right a pile of backfill has raised the water level to within a few inches of the roof. The main adit crosses another vein just inside the portal. Workings on this end after a few yards on the right, while to the left are a series of flooded winzes in the floor, with the passage continuing beyond. Below water level there is extensive stoping. On the hillside above are two filled shafts which connected with the workings.

A small hole on the right of the track, 45 yards north of the ford, leads into a collapsed adit. There seems to be a spoil tip for this on the opposite side of the stream.
