Brixworth Old Pits Iron Mine (United Kingdom)


Started in 1863 by Rev C.F.Watkin, Attenborough & Co from 1872 and Attenborough &Timms from around 1890. The date of closure is not recorded but thought to have been circa 1900, as workings were of outcrop type when they became exhausted they were top soiled and simply vanished.
