Warren Moor Mine 2024

A short but steep adventure to discover a remarkably well preserved ironstone mine and chimney, with the ruins of the boiler house, engine bed, winding engine bed with huge stone plinths that supported a horizontal winding engine. The upcast shaft was 220ft deep, this reached the main seam and went a little lower to create a sump for water. Air would have been drawn up this shaft by connecting a flue to the boiler chimney. At the same time, water would have been pumped up this shaft and drained into the beck in the valley bottom.
