Hebden Trial Level - The Story of a Yorkshire Dales Lead Mine

A Wall Support

Photograph of a wall prop in Hebden Horse Level

This photograph taken in 2006 by Peter Hodge shows a section of passage midway between the dam and the first blockage, which is supported by a wall prop. This prop is actually in good condition, but others further on are rotten. Note that a section of the wall has been lined, and that before the water level was lowered this section was waist deep.
