Bunton Mine and Gunnerside Beck background

Bunton Mine near Gunnerside is just one of many disused lead mines in Swaledale that date from the Nineteenth Century. Below Gunnerside Beck flows through the ravine of Gunnerside Gill past the devastated scene.

Lead mining activities have given this area north of Swaledale an apocolyptic appearance, the scale of which has to be seen to be believed. The desolate landscape, of which Bunton Mine is but a small part, is strangely attractive though.

This panoramic view of the old mine is composed of five individual photos stitched together.
