Full Description

At Enterprise Mine there is a bank of two bouse teems and a water storage pond with a feader leat. Nearby there is an enterable trial level. Elsewhere in the area the hillocks of relatively small veins are well preserved, with some opencuts and levels, and a ruined coe in the valley bottom at Shepherds Mine. A natural cave on the vein to the west leads to mine workings with a deep internal shaft. At Sallet Hole Mine the 20th century level survives and is gated, but the buildings of this now disused fluorspar mine have recently been removed. (1)
