UK»England»Shropshire»Snailbeach Lead Mine

Snailbeach Lead Mine: Many of the mine buildings and land are owned by Shropshire County Council and you can have free access to visit them. It should be fairly obvious, however, where remains lie on private land and we ask you to respect the privacy of the villagers who live there. If you follow the route of the virtual tour then you will not trespass. You will note as you go around that the mine levels are grilled and some of the buildings are locked, eg Locomotive Shed, Blacksmiths Shop and Miners Dry, which has been converted into a visitor centre.

Head for the A5 Shrewsbury bypass from either east or west and turn down the A488 south signposted for Bishops Castle. Follow the A488 through Hanwood and Pontesbury. At Minsterley turn left at the roundabout along the A488 and after 2 miles look for a bus shelter on the right.

Turn left just after this along a minor road signposted to Snailbeach. Follow this up the hill and, where the road flattens and turns right, look for the car park on the right hand side.


Opening times (Easter - October)
