Full Description

Lynchets and mining located north-east of Middleton as part of the disused Stitchen Mine. The area is predominantly mined for lead. The features were first identified as earthworks, during a LiDAR survey which was carried out in 2015. The Medieval lynchets are aligned north-east to south-west. The evidence for mining is characterised as a collection of roughly circular spoil heaps associated with mine shafts. (1)
