Sett of mines on Grassington High Moor. Grid reference given is for West Turf Pits shaft from which crosscuts were driven to explore ground between Legrim's, Sixtynine and North Cavern Veins.
Also on the sett are Old Turf Pits and Turf Pits Air Shaft.

Note on the mineral list: Argentojarosite, Metacinnabar and Plumbojarosite have been removed from the list due to the high probability of fraudulent recording of discovery by A.W.G. Kingsbury, see e.g. http://www.minersoc.org/pages/Archive-MM/Volume_35/35-269-xlix.pdf
