Ironstone was extracted from Spa Wood mine between March 1853 and December 1928.
Approaching from the east through large mine spoil heaps currently used by bikers, you first encounter a powder magazine
Close by are the bricked up travelling and main drifts.
In the next area to the west of the drifts are the offices and workshops which are still largely intact, having been part of a scrapyard until recent years. A chimney also stood here which was only recently demolished.
Further west stand the remains of two fan houses for ventilating the mine workings. Finally to the extreme west of the site stands an electrical sub-station from the later years of electrication
UPDATE : This location has since been purchased as a private residence and should no longer be visited.
