Yew Tree Fluorite Mine (United Kingdom)


This was a new mine opened in 1977 by two brothers J & J Madison specifically to mine Fluorspar via the single adit. The mine was closed in 1983 but re-opened in September 1984 by B.R.M Industries. It closed about 2 months later and the site was cleared soon after.
