    Swan Mine lies opposite the Swan Inn, which was previously the quarry managers house and is held to the hillside by great iron chains anchored into the buried workings of the quarry.

    Swan mine was producing stone as far back as 1833, it was never modernised and all the stone it produced was hauled out with wooden carts pulled by pit ponies.

    The cart tracks and hoofprints are still visable to this day.

    A lower series of tunnels can be reached through a small letterbox slide.
