Full Description

A lead mining vein with medium sized hollows and hillocks and a small shaft. The quarries and kilns of the limekiln complex [see SMR 11687] cut the vein. The 1807 map of the Liberty of Peak Forest shows a shaft along the line of this vein to the west of the first which has been substantially destroyed or backfilled. A disused shaft is shown on the OS maps from 1880, it can still be seen today as a backfilled hollow upon the eastern end of the vein. A third shaft well to the west appears to be a small climbing shaft and is covered by two gritstone slabs. (1)
