Force Crag Mine LAST Open Day
on Thursday, 28th August 2014

Force Crag was the last mineral mine worked in the Lake District, it was mined for lead, zinc and barytes from 1839 until 1991 when it was finally abandoned leaving an almost complete set of ore-refining machinery.
The tour does not include any underground section of the mine which is now unsafe and flooded but does take in the processing mill (a Scheduled Ancient Monument) with its equipment, the valley which is a geological SSSI and the new ground breaking pilot passive-mine-water remediation scheme which is removing metal contaminants from the Coledale Beck.
