Sunk in 1914 it was worked worked with the Ullcoat Mine from 1917 until 1968 following Nationalisation. Beckermet Mines (part of British Steel Corp) took it over in 1969 for Workington Steel works which closed in 1980 as part of their rationalisation process. Egremont Mining Co. was set up by redundant workers to make it the last deep working iron ore mine in Europe, but it closed in 2007 due to the cost of water pumping
