Sometimes when the weather is bad it’s better to train inside 😉

The Lake District is full of mines, wether it be slate, plumbago, lead, copper and more, over the years the land has been mined for a number of these precious minerals.

Almost any where you go in the Lakes you will find remnants of the mining which once took place there and quite often some of the mine holes are still open.

This is part of the Goldscope Mine in Newlands Valley which was worked by German miners since the 16th century. It yielded such large amounts of lead and copper that it was called “Gottesgab” (God's Gift) by the German miners brought over to develop the mine in its early days.

The mine closed at the end of the 19th century, not because it was exhausted but because the mine's main shaft had gone so deep it had become uneconomic to pump the water from it.

⚠️ Warning ⚠️ , don’t enter a mine unless with someone experienced with the correct kit and certainly don’t enter on your own as quite often they can collapse or contain false floors.
