    Default Snailbeach Lead Mine, Shropshire

    During May I have had a good mooch around Snailbeach Lead Mine in Shropshire. There is a lot to see and one can download a trail leaflet on the web.

    In normal times the restored buildings are open and underground tours are available on selected dates - but at present they are suspended.

    It is well worth a visit:

    Perkins Level

    Niagara Screens

    Upper works

    Original 1790s pumping engine house and the restored Blacksmith's Shop

    Cornish Engine House

About us
DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
