Bunton Mine and Gunnerside Beck
Bunton Mine near Gunnerside is 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 resultant desolate landscape, of which this is but a small part, is strangely attractive though.
This panoramic view of the mine is composed of five photos stitched together and was taken on a walk from Gunnerside.
