Woodhead Lead Mine

Description

A contemporary coloured photograph of what is left of the leadmine which had a working life from 1839 to 1873. During that time there were 50 houses, a school and a store. At the height of the mining operation in the late 1840's a population of over 300 people lived here - the remains of their occupation lies all around. See Heritage Trail 3.
