While lighting the fire today with the property section of the Yorkshire Post, a bit caught my eye about Prye House Farm for sale in the Dales , north-east of Reeth, which was described as having mine workings on its land. Looks like this is the mine in question, with a derelict mine shop and a fine set of bouse teems: https://www.aditnow.co.uk/Mines/Pryes-Lead-Mine_7767/Anyone with half a million or so spare who fancies living in a remote spot with their very own abandoned mines, get your tender in by the beginning of October...
It does look very attractive. But I am sure it will go for more than £500K. Maybe £1500K !Chris.
…..The neighbour is a right b**tard….
This is my next door neighbour. The mine and that old building are at the bottom of my front fields by the beck. Far too much brass. The land is worth £2k an acre tops, the house will want a load of work, I’d say it’s worth £350 k max. To get access to that old building you’d need to sort out 2 other landowners, and put a road in… The water supply for the whole lot is down some alkathene pipe, through my meadows, but officially doesn’t exist… The neighbour is a right b**tard….Maybe not such a bargain sadly!

At the other end of the age range, young professional couples are moving up here, only to find that as their children get older, they can't wait to move back to big cities, where there is actually something going on.
The biggest problem I found with bringing kids up in the middle of nowhere was the 0230 phonecall on Sunday mornings: 'Dad, I'm outside a disco in the middle of Oxford and the taxi driver says it'll cost £50 to get back home - can you pick me up?'
