Wotherton Baryte Mine (United Kingdom)

The winding engine house on Old Engine Shaft remains almost complete and has been converted to a dwelling, although the cut out for a wheel can be seen in one corner. The shaft has been filled and the big boggy depression between here and the road is probably due to collapsed workings. To the west is a ruined building next to New Engine Shaft which may have housed a pumping engine. This shaft has also been filled, as has a climbing shaft to the east.
