Lingdale Ironstone Mine

Despite being one of the last in the area to close in 1962, there are very few surface remains left in Lingdale, with the area now covered by an industrial estate.

The only substantial remains are part of the Scirocco fanhouse which ventilated the mine, its curved walls can still be seen and either wind or water can be heard roaring inside the No. 1 shaft if you put your ear to the metal door. I would love to see whats in there.

The other large but heavily modified building is the remains of the boiler house.
