Westcott Mixed Mine (United Kingdom)

The main part of this mine around the engine house, boiler house and shaft has been landscaped into a garden for Westcott Birches. Pump rods used to stick out of the shaft but it has now been filled with rubbish. Two adjacent adits have collapsed but one was explored in 1960, when it went a short distance to flooded stopes leading down.

South of the garden, there are two open adits east of the track but neither goes very far. Further on is a collapsed adit west of the track and the main adit east of the track. This goes to a junction where stoping on a vein extends to the right and left. To the right is a flooded winze, beyond which a shaft leads to surface. To the left, the passage crosses over two flooded winzes and ends at a blind heading. A sloping stope leads up but does not go far. Further up the hillside is an open stope and two collapsed shafts.

To the west of the road is the tip of a collapsed shaft and a collapsed trial adit.
