Below Minera lies a valuable metal that people have used for over 8,000 years – lead. At Meadow Shaft (the site of the Minera Lead Mines visitor centre) the lead is deep underground. However the first mines were up on Eisteddfod and Esclusham Mountains, above Minera, where the lead is at or near the surface. You will find plenty more about the story of the Lead Mines in “The Story of Minera Lead Mine“.
