Full Description

This site comprises eight large bell pits and associated spoil, together with several smaller pits. Two platforms are associated with the surveyed shafts, one with a yard part-defined by a bank. These area would have been used for loading, and buildings might have existed. The causeway that links the more developed Long Causey [SMR 11348] to the pits across the wet ground stands up to 0.5m high. The causeway from the shaft to the smaller northern platform appears to post-date the causeway to the larger southern platform. The Ringinglow coal seam outcrops immediately southwards of the shafts, following Stanage Edge at a distance back from the ridge. A group of four smaller pits with no spoil exist further to the south. (1)
