Description:

A mining area since gold was found in the 16th century, the village of Wanlockhead grew up around the lead mines which provided employment from the mid-seventeenth century right up until the early 1900s. It is to their credit that twentieth century villagers recognised the value of their mining heritage and with the help of mining engineer Geoff Downs Rose established the Wanlockhead Museum Trust once mining ceased.
