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.
Our first look into this level which has had a portal face
lift in the last few years.
