This sough drained the east range of Hills Rake (SMR 7621), Tanners vein, Wrights vein and Pic Tor End Pipe (SMR 7627). It was begun as a bolt on Bradwell Brook. The sough was started in 1766/1767 and driven in shale to Bradwell edge mine (2300ft from tail?) by 1732, then 1000ft further, probably along shale/limestone contact, to Hills Rake by 1775. A branch was driven (1250ft) along Hills Rake and then 800ft more to Bradwell Dale bottom 1786 continued south, reaching Tanners Venture Vein in 1794. The sough then cut south-west for 900ft, then north-west to Pic Tor End Mine by 1802. (1)
