Three natural hollows, each with a built pond in the base. While these might be at least part-natural, the presence of a 'bank' of material to the east of the central pond suggests the possibility that they were open-cast, pipe-working lead mines. The central pond at least is likely to have already been a long-established stock-watering place by 1804, as an access route was built so that it could continue to be used communally even after the moor was enclosed. (1) Only able to find one pond clearly visible on map and satellite imagery. (2,3)
