- LEAD MINE (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- MINE SHAFT (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
Hillocks on veins, with several capped shafts, where the primary interest is ecological. At the northern edge of the area is a rare survival of a line of four beehive caps over small shafts. The shaft at Water Icicle Close Mine leads to natural passages where miners have removed stalagmites (thought to be for incorporation into a grotto at Chatsworth) and to a good example of narrow vein workings. (1) Considerable area of disused lead mines with several infilled shafts, spoil heaps, and disturbed ground. (2)
