3 km from Harwood, County Durham, Great Britain

Ashgillhead Mine, Teesdale
Ashgillhead Mine, Teesdale
The entrance level to the mine can be seen towards the centre of the photograph. The building at the side is a "mine shop" - these were lodging houses (basically just a place to sleep) as the mine was far from where the miners probably lived. In winter, when the snows would be many feet deep, the miners would still be able to work.
