About this photo

I took this photo of the Magpie lead mine on the last day of a two night camp in the White Peaks area of the Peak District National Park. The mine is located near Sheldon, Buxton. The atmospheric remains of Magpie Mine is one of the best places to visit in the Peak District and one of the top industrial heritage sites in Derbyshire. It was the last working lead mine in the Derbyshire orefield and is probably the best surviving example anywhere in the UK of a 19th century lead mine. The mine has a fascinating history spanning more than 200 years.
