Bentyfield Low Level, Bentyfield Mines, Garrigill, Cumbria.

Back to Mine Index

The Bentyfield Mines consist of a number of levels that worked the Bentyfield, Bentyfield Sun Veins and the Browngill, Browngill Sun Veins as well as some smaller ones. It is worth noting that the Bentyfield Vein in this area is the same as the Gudhamgill Vein in Nenthead.

Bentyfield Low Level was driven in the shale under the Tuft and is a straight drive of 290m to the Bentyfield Sun Vein where it bears north east towards the Bentyfield Level workings. From the Sun Vein it extends another 230m to the Thortergill Syke North Vein.
