Sunrise at Magpie Mine

© Gerard Tohill 2016

You simply cannot beat a good sunrise.

Magpie Mine is an abandoned lead mine in the Peak District. Rumoured to be haunted by the ghosts of three miners from a rival mine who were killed by the actions of some of the miners at Magpie Mine, all I saw were a few nervous rabbits.

This is a great site to photograph – more images to follow.
