Lead Mines Clough

Lead Mines Clough is located around a mineral vein that has infilled along a geological fault line. The area was mined extensively in the past and there are obvious bell pits on the higher ground and an excellent example of later mine workings that was restored by volunteers.

The brook flowing through the area has several waterfalls and has exposed quite large areas of rock bedding that gives the area a different look to its surroundings, that is carried further by the pine tree plantations that are still in place. Many such plantations having been removed and re-planted with native trees.

Lead Mines Clough is also where several important paths meet on many walking routes.
