Recent archaeological surveys of woodland in north-east Derbyshire recorded a number of deposits of iron slag having the appearance of bloomery slag. Two of these are in Cockshots Wood. The sites, together with that in nearby Widdowson Spring Wood, are situated on the Blackshale Ironstone Rake. A detailed survey of the wood was not possible, and it is likely that more slag deposits await discovery. Other features were also seen from footpaths in these woods, including probable coal workings, possible shallow workings for ironstone, the remains of Q-pits and a charcoal production site. (1)
