Lead mine first recorded in 1761, being worked by the London Lead Company. There is a sough level in the valley bottom, extending an unknown distance along the sole of the vein. Surface remains include an old coe and the leat from the sough. (1). Sough first recorded in a transfer of title of 1814. May be a London Lead Company construction or a later (1766?) local effort. (2).
The sough level belonging to Smallpenny Vein worked by the London Lead Company. There is a ruined mining coe situated next to the adit/level and a leat is visible frunning from the coe alongside the path. It is c. 2m wide and 0.5m deep. The coe and adit are shown on the 1880 Ordnance Survey map. (3).
Smallpenny Vein Sough was recorded in 1814. The vein can be traced up the steep hillside by narrow workings and then by lines of grassed over hillocks. (4).
