Derelict Mine Workings

Rail tracks at derelict mine site

Rusting rails coming out of mine workings

While out exploring in the surrounding area of where we live, I came across a field with what looked like a decaying pile of concrete. Pulling off the road I could see there was no gate, no warning signs or “Private Keep Out” signs, so I wandered in.  It turned out to be a derelict mine.  There are a number of derelict buildings, some of which have been on fire at some point and a concrete ramp with railtracks on for containers, presumably to empty into waiting trucks.  Unfortunately, the day was rather wet and overcast, but I managed to get a number of shots, some of which i’ll share over the coming days and weeks. It offered and interesting change and challenge from our commercial photography work.

Should you want to see some of the more traditional landscape shots that we do, visit the landscape gallery on our main web site.
