Full Description

Stoke Old Engines is a large flat-topped hillock with two engine shafts, one covered with a beehive cap, the other walled round. To one side is a semicircular terrace that may well be the site of a gin engine. These deep 18th century shafts were sunk through gritstone and shale to Stoke Sough, which in turn led to the veins in underlying limestone to the west. (1)
