Prosperous Smelt Mill, Merryfield
Built around 1800 the mill smelted the lead ore produced from the Prosperous and Providence Mines. The crown cog wheel standing proud in front of the mill rises up from Smelt Mill Shaft where an underground 20 foot diameter waterwheel supplied power to the mill. The pinion shaft lies in the now blocked shaft.
