Placket Mines consists of a deep engine shaft which gives access to very extensive pipe and vein workings of great potential interest. Little detail of the character is yet recorded, but a long underground buddle has been noted. (1) As with neighbouring Elton, the village is surrounded by former lead-mining sites but with little significant impact in terms of structures despite the former existences of well known mines in the local vicinity. Capped shafts are typical of many sites. The area around Oddo to the west of the parish church is dotted with old workings and there are many to both the east and west of Uppertown Lane between Winster and Birchover. (2)
