Britannia Beach Mine

Located north of Vancouver on the Sea to Sky Highway, Britannia Beach isn’t the sort of beach you’d actually want to swim at. The place is all about the mine. I decided to explore the tiny site I’d often driven past.

I’ve been down in a goldmine in Ballarat, a coal mine in Wonthaggi and a copper-gold mine at Mt Morgan (all in Australia) so excuse me for not venturing into Britannia Beach Mines.

Old houses staff once occupied (and still might), lined a street. What interested me most, was the church that was converted into a Canada Post branch.
