This page should be merged with, which is the correct locality. Although there are several barite mines in the area, Jinny Hill was by far the largest and produced all the best and preserved historic specimens. It was often generically called the "Cheshire barite mines" and so old unattributed specimens should default to this locality.

I agree with you Fritz. I have noted several pictures with descriptive language referring to Jinny Hill yet are listed under the less productive mines in Cheshire.
