Bryntail Lead Mine is a disused lead mine near Llanidloes in Montgomeryshire.[1] It is in the care of Cadw. There were three main shafts, Murray's, Gundry's and Western shaft. The majority of the scheduled buildings on the site are associated with Gundry's shaft, including a barytes mill, two crushing houses, ore bins, roasting ovens and water tanks. On the eastern dressing floor are jigger box placements, three buddles, two more ore bins and washing and picking floors. Other mine buildings include the manager's office, smithy, store buildings and a circular magazine.
