Worked for lead up until 1846, possibly from as early as 1611. Reworking the mine for witherite started in 1846 and continued up to 1911 when it closed, possibly due to competition in a limited marketplace from the nearby Settlingstones mine.
The site is now obscured by a caravan site, but when LL last visited in 1986, it was still possible to find some dump material.
