Magpie Mine


Photo Information
The Magpie Mine, just South of Sheldon, Derbyshire,was one of the most famous lead mines in the Peak District and is the only one with a significant part of its building still standing, having been taken into the care of the Peak District Mines Historical Society in 1962.

The mine is first recorded in 1795, though the workings are probably much older. It finally ceased operations in 1958, though the working in the 1950s mined little actual lead. The heyday of the mine was in the mid 19th Century.

Just the right amount of contrast to make it dramatic!
