Also known as never fear mine and Nicko Grove Mine (in the Medieval period). Worked in the 1750's (1)
Great Cucklet Mine is a good example of a small mine level (often known as Nickergrove Mine). There are also two shaft entrances nearby and hillocks below. The level intersects natural passages and exploited small veins, and there are cross-cuts, small stopes and internal shafts. Recent digging found wooden rails of an unusual type. (2)
