Caplecleugh Firestone Level, Nenthead, Cumbria.

Back to Mine Index

The Caplecleugh Firestone Level follows the Caplecleugh North Vein and it was driven below the Firestone Sill. A line of shafts north of Old Carr's Burn marks the vein and the early workings. The level was presumably driven for drainage of the shaft workings. No further history of the level can currently be found. If you do visit for a look please leave the entrance as you found it, as it has not gate. (Last Update 15/01/08)
