NZ0105 : Windegg Mine

taken 7 years ago, 3 km from Langthwaite, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Windegg Mine
Windegg Mine
The spoil from the level of the Windegg Mine is in the centre of the image, it has been taken from the Windegg Level which is now largely obscured. It seems however that enthusiasts have accessed the mine beyond a collapse just inside the level by digging down behind it; the fenced area surrounds the short, newly created shaft. The circular metal sheet that covers the access carries a message from Swaledale Outdoor Club.
