Penny mine engine shaft and belland yard, on the same rake as Hazard mine. (1).
Lead workings along a rake running south-west to north-east, known as Old Wham Vein. Shafts and waste hillocks are preserved towards the western end of the rake. To the east, it has recently been reworked and most of the earlier evidence of mining has been removed. Within the rake is Penny Mine engine shaft situated within a belland yard. This yard is enclosed by a ruined dry-stone wall. (2).
Wham and Wrangling Rakes, and Penny Mines. Some surviving large hillocks and hollows, others completely removed, where the primary interest is ecological. There are also ruined belland yards and a few capped shafts. (3).
