The original Lydbrook Deep Level (SO 606154) was part of Lydbrook Colliery (1866-1917), but a free mine of this name was worked by Mervyn Bradley, who moved to Monument Mine in Bixslade in 2000. An inclined drift probably worked the lower part of the Pennant Group, which includes the Coleford High Delf Seam. Fair to poor. One adit entrance survives in good condition, but, apart from a shed, most the associated buildings have been removed. (March 2002)
