Mine Plans

A number of new plans have been created for the mines associated with Nenthead. These are full colour large format prints available for purchase. The plans that are currently available are detailed below. All plans are sold as an interpretation and no responsibility for inaccuracies is taken.

The plans are sold at cost with a small handling fee to cover research and delivery. If you would like to purchase copies please email me on the address shown in contact for Mike Hrybyk. Price of the plans are shown below.

There are 2 delivery options, flat rate 1 - 7 plans: Cardboard tube, 1st class Royal Mail: £5.75. If you don't mind the plans being folded twice to A4 size, 1st class Royal Mail via letter is £3.00.

Creating the plans is a long process, I hope to have plans available in the future for Gudhamgill, Nentsberry Haggs, and Barneycraig with the ultimate aim of making one single one showing the whole of the Nenthead mining complex. Click on the thumbnails for a sample image of the plans.
