LEAD MINING Wirksworth owes its past prosperity to leadmining. Daniel Defoe on his tour of Britain in the 1720's described the town as a kind of market for lead: "The like is not known anywhere else that I know of except it be the custom house keys in London". The Romans mined lead in the area, and it is probable that it was mined before then.
