Bretton Clough and Spoil Heaps, Bretton

Recent Photograph of Bretton Clough and Spoil Heaps (Bretton)

Lead mining countryside - what can only be irregular heaps of 'spoil' discarded from pickings? The surrounding countryside is dotted with Mines named ‘Middleton Engine’, ‘Bradshaws’, ‘Slaters Engine’ and ‘Twelve Meers’, with ‘Ladywash’ and ‘Haycliff’ nearby.
