Images and drawings intro

These photographs of the Mineral Line fall intro three categories: those taken during the various phases of operation of the mines and railway; pictures taken throughout the period of nearly a hundred years during which the remains of the railway were researched, investigated and explored; and finally some recent images documenting the work financed by this project. 


The collection also includes a selection of the architectural and reconstruction drawings by Mike Jones from the Brendon Hill Industrial Survey (BHIS).   


We will be adding more material , so keep checking!
