Brynlow Mine has parts dating back to the Bronze Age but most of the mine is 18th and 19th century. In the 1860s, it formed part of the Hough Level route between Wood Mine and Engine Vein. In the 1930s, Brynlow was one of the routes into the mines. The entrance became blocked with leaves and was re-opened by the DCC in the 1980s.
