While the sun was out during the Mayday bank holiday me and my photo buddy Tim managed to get out into the Derbyshire Peak District and visit some places such as the Magpie Mine, SW of Sheldon, Derbyshire. and accessed of Horse Lane (53.2066, -1.7433)
It has a fascinating history spanning more than 200 years of bonanzas and failures, of bitter disputes and fights resulting in the “murder” of three miners, and a Widows’ Curse that is said to remain to this day.
If you are passing it is worth stopping off and exploring the area, heck even Tony Robinson has been to the mine and done a feature on it and worth the effort for documentary photography.
Panoramic above was done in camera with the Fujifilm X-E1
