Here are the best locations to find gold in England.
The Lake District
Mungrisdale, Dunmail Raise and Blencathra Mountain are reputed to be good spots and traces have also been found in Troutbeck and Sedbergh.
The Northern Pennines have a wealth of minerals, including gold. Nenthead and the River Swale have both had reports of gold finds.
Forest of Dean
In 1906 there were reports of gold being found near Wigpool in the Forest of Dean. Apparently there is still gold in the ground to be found.
Hopes Nose, Torquay, Devon
Spectacular rock formations hide the fact there is gold to be found in this area of Devon.
Tin may no longer be commercially viable but gold is. Recently a commercial gold mine has been established in an old tin mine in Camborne, Cornwall. According to locals, the rivers to the North and West are well worth investigating.
