Some photographs from a visit to Carrock Tungsten Mine, Mungrisdale, Eden, Cumbria. The workings pictured are from the older 1915 workings. I have included a few shots of minerals found from the location.

The circular section of mine workings I originally thought was the base of a huge flue. This was later identified as the base of a wash plant. I found the huge internal fin mechanism absolutely fascinating.

I really enjoy finding and seeing these old workings. It's interesting to imagine the travels at those times, to and from for product, people, and other materials.

Thanks,
Bob

At the time of both world wars it was classed as an area of strategic importance, Sappers from Canada were mobilized to work it in second world war. German prisoners of war were also utilized to mine the vital supplies of tungsten required for the war effort. In Elizabethan times highly respected mine engineers made enormous exploration of this area for the crown at great expense to the nation. So, you are correct in that it has a diverse past lol
