Overton Lead Mine (United Kingdom)


This is an interesting site. In the trees near the road junction opposite the cottages are a shaft complete with small head gear and a small winder. The cage rest on plates thrown across the shaft and is still connected to the winder by the original winding ropes. It is often overgrown but in winter photography is possible.
