Force Crag Mine was the last working metal mine in the Lake District, prior to its final abandonment in 1991. The site was mined for lead from 1839 until 1865, and for zinc and barytes from 1867. The job of the mill was to separate these minerals from each other, and from any other minerals and the country rock. It is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and a geological SSSI (site of special scientific interest).

The first time we visited here was a few years ago on a drizzly, misty night.
Quite spooky - Think we've watched too much horror movies :eek::eek:
