UCMa - Coate Moor Ironstone Mine

Date : 18/06/2022    Time : 10:00 - 12:00

Details : This small ironstone mine was active for a few years around 1870. The workings are quite extensive and contain some excellent features illustrating the working methods of this period. Over the past few years, with the co-operation of the landowner, CMHS have restored access to the workings which are usually kept locked. The visit will consist of much bent walking with some areas very rough underfoot and a few short crawls. Conditions are generally dry but with some sections wet underfoot.

UESa - Eskdaleside Ironstone Mine

Date : 18/06/2022    Time : 10:00 - 12:00

Details : Situated on a sloping site in the Esk Valley, this mine operated at various times between 1847 and 1915. Surface remains include a CMHS restored furnace chimney, powder house and 3 drift entrances. Access to the mine tour is by way of a steep flight of steps and then internally via a short crawl through scaffolding. The mine is mainly dry, but Wellingtons are recommended. The air is good, permitting observation of the methods of working and various artifacts.

UHLa - Hutton Lowcross Jet Mine

Date : 18/06/2022    Time : 10:00 - 13:00

Details : This 1870s mine is driven entirely in loose shale, involves significant crawling and squeezing through a complex labyrinth of passages between two entrances. The area visited will be largely dry, but some dampness may be encountered during the hour-long underground journey and on the half hour's walk to the entrance if it is raining. Full subsurface gear is required, plus the ability not to be phased by shale from the roof falling down inside one's clothing.

USLa - Sil Howe Whinstone Mine

Date : 18/06/2022    Time : 10:00 - 12:00

Details : Whinstone was extracted from the Cleveland Dyke from the 1860s to 1951, initially through quarrying and then as a mine. Rock was transported by tramway from the quarries to a crushing plant at Goathland station and mainly used as roadstone, including ‘setts’. Access to the mine is via a 900mm pipe with rungs followed by a 500m adit, which is very wet with flowing water and lowish roof which is back bending. The mine is well ventilated and is dry and extensive with good headroom in most areas, but exploration demands some crawling and climbing on loose rock and dirt, with occasional short but steep climbs or drops.
