Portal to Engine Shaft at
Cononley Lead Mine


Portal to shaft, c 1842. Coursed rubble stone. Dry stone walling lining entrance
walls, rising to form barrel vault over the door to the shaft. Walls taper in towards
the door and stonework above the door is held up on iron and timber joists. This
passage led into a shaft which was sunk to about 480 feet, and was the principal deep
trail on the mine. It served as an access and pumping way for those stopes under the
adit level. Part of a group of lead mine buildings at Cononley erected by the Duke of
Devonshire's agents between 1842 and 1847.
