UK Grid Reference: NY946377
"Billing Hills is a very imprecise location. It is an area to the east and south of what was the crushing plant at the Blue Circle cement works. It is crossed by the Slitt Vein which was worked opencast and also from levels driven from the fell side below. In addition there are several small un-named veins in the area, as well as the famous green fluorite area in the main quarry."
