Myers Head Lead Mine 2024

This small mine was worked for less than 10 years in the 1870s, until the miners broke into a cavity and the shaft was flooded. The pit that once housed a massive 30ft waterwheel, and the stone pillars that supported the wooden ‘launder’ or chute, which carried water to drive the wheel.
