Zenfolio | Forgotten Isle | Beckwiths Mine

Beckwiths mine, known locally by it's iconic leaning chimney is located in Glen Rushen, and is part of the Foxdale mines group. Lead mining here started in 1831. The mine caused many problems during it's life with continuous flooding, despite this work carried on until its closure in 1879.

Unfortunately since taking these photos in 2004, the iconic leaning chimney has collapsed.
