Tankerville lead mine, Shropshire
The remains of the Tankerville mine can be found down a steep track about a mile south of Stiperstones village. They have recently been conserved by the Shropshire Mines Trust. For a few brief years in the 1860s and 1870s this was the most productive lead mine in the country. Read more about its history on the Trust's website.
