South of Minsterley are the remains of a 19th century mine, also a still inhabited hamlet of the same name - Tankerville. Despite the mine closing in 1884 there are still some structures standing.
Tankerville had the deepest shaft in the Shropshire ore field - 1,612ft below surface - and a steam engine more than 1,000ft below ground
