Magpie Mine, Sheldon - September 2013

Magpie Mine, Sheldon, Derbyshire - worth a mooch both Tin Dog and I thought, an 18th century lead mine in some of England's finest countryside and only an hours drive from Manchester.

A favorite mooch of many an urban explorer who is fed up of grime and slime, industrial heritage with fresh air and cow poo.

So what we have here is a cursed industrial site, a scene of murders it says in this here guide book - made a nice change to buy a guide book (and only one shiny English Pound).

 Magpie Mine

An enchanting place, they have a website and I'm not going into the history of this place, get in the car and buy a guide book to the place when you get there. DE45 1QU is the postcode for your satnav, pop into Sheldon village on your wayback for a beer or to the tea shop, Sheldon is a beautiful village - now get off your arse.
