Three Kings Mine
The Tilberthwaite Mine, reckoned to be based on the old Three King’s Mine is a deep, 155 metres down to the Tilberthwaite Deep Level or Horse Level that was used to pull the ore out horizontally through the mountain. The open stopes here said to be about 62 metres, so watch where you’re standing.
The remains of the Tilberthwaite mine buildings and other workings can be seen all around but the Three Kings Mine itself is said to be much older.
The mine itself has been explored (not by us), specialist equipment is needed to descend into the mine and to get back out as the Deep Level Adit is collapsed.
