Geocache Description:

This cache and four others in the series have been set up by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and can be found at or near historic lead mining sites in the National Park.

The caches contain the usual items PLUS ADDITIONAL INFORMATION so that you can find out more about the archaeology and history of this interesting and beautiful area.

The extensive lead mining remains on Grassington Moor are a reminder of how important this industry once was in the Yorkshire Dales. Explore them carefully, but don’t stray off the marked paths as there are many dangerous and very deep mine shafts on the moor.

To find out more information about this and other lead mining sites in the National Park download our  free leadmining app packed full of site specific information, walks, audiotrails and visitor information. Look for ‘Yorkshire Dales Lead Mining’ in the App Store or Google Play. There’s also lots of information on our archaeology website

The leadmine geocaches and the app were generously funded by Historic England. Looking after these extensive industrial remains is not easy and we are grateful to Historic England for helping to fund so much of the conservation work carried out over the past 20 years.

The five caches in the series are:

Reeth Remembered (Swaledale)

Old Gang Peat Store (Swaledale)

New or CB Mill (Arkengarthdale)

Bolton Park Mine (Wensleydale)

Moor Mines (Wharfedale)
