North of England Lead Mining Museum

Going up to Killhope, a little town situated in the valley surrounded by sheep fields, you can see admire the splendid countryside of the North Pennines. The stone of the buildings, trams and enormous paddle wheels illustrate the difficult working conditions of the 19C in this old mining area, as told by its two inhabitants, William and Phoebe Millaun.
