Lead rakes are visible in the fields north of Wardlow Sough. (1) On the northern vein some of the lead remains were being open cast and some were already levelled. Clearly there had once been large waste hillocks here. There is a possible shaft in between the two veins with heaps of stone on top of it, possibly as capping. There was little upcast around it, but this may have been levelled. These lead mining remains are marked on the 1880 Ordnance Survey map as "old lead mines" which suggests they were out of use by then. (2)
