Red Cliffe Mines

This ruined building is all that is left of the Red Cliffe Lead Mines at Grimwith in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It was a small concern, with 6 or 7 miners working together for a few years on the remote moors. Records show that the mines closed in the 1870s and provided little yield. It was an incredibly hard life and for most the pickings were slim.
