Killhope lead mine at sunrise

From the General Landscapes collection

The mining of lead ore took place here from 1818 until 1910 when production ceased, although it was briefly reopened in 1916. It lay derelict for over 60 years & fell into decay until the local council started a restoration programme in 1980.
