The west end is the last remaining unrestored part of Shuttle Rake. That to the east has been completely restored following open-cast working. It was extensively worked for lead over about 1.5 miles. All that remains now is a series of old hillocks, with one or two open shafts in the plantation south of The Holmes. (1) Intake Dale Mine and Shuttle Rake. Hillocks, mostly disturbed or removed, where primary interest is ecological. Part of a gin circle survives.
