Wimps and Y Anchors

Singing River Mine

The mine was worked in the 18th and 19th centuries for calamine (zinc carbonate), blende (zinc sulphide) and galena (lead sulphide). In the 1920’s it was used as an underground reservoir by the water authorities. A small stream flows through the mine in parts. The entrance is actually in someones back garden.
