Shaft, partially in the bank and the roadway, on Hillcarr Sough. The shaft is covered by gritsonte slabs (1)
The shaft was dug 1775-7 as part of the construction of Hillcarr Sough. Below the road is a dam with a retaining wall. The dam created the water blast in Brown Bank shaft, which was an access and ventilation shaft. (2)
The main interest to Hillcarr Sough - Brown Bank Shaft is a dam, with dressed stone abutments, and an overflow race. These were built for water blast ventilation to Hillcarr Sough; they are the only such remains in the orefield. There is also a possible ruined coe nearby. The capped ventilation shaft itself is no longer visible, but there is a flat working area cut into the hillside immediately above. (3)
