Monument record MDR12044 - Coal mine adit, near Rake End, Hartington Upper Quarter
Type and Period (1)
- ADIT (Georgian - 1800 AD to 1800 AD)
- None recorded
A mine adit in a deep hollow, cut to exploit the Ringinglow coal seam. The adit is still open and comprises a low tunnel cut in rock, which dips gently with the strata. There is no tramway running to it which may suggest it pre-dates the Cromford and High Peak Railway built in the late 1820's. (1)
