Force Crag mine, Braithwaite.

A rather murky walk up to Force Crag mine, at the head of the Coledale valley. Skiddaw and Blencathra soon disappeared under sleet showers that rapidly spread across the valley to us.

Old mine workings and the new water treatment works - the smell from the pools was just like the sulphurous smell at Iceland's solfatara.
The old mine buildings.

Cold views! 

Minerals on the spoil heaps.
