Aligned along a nearly perfect straight line, the altitude maps shows 8 quarries, all of them rather narrow and elongated.
Considering the history of this area, they are most likely iron mines.
They start at:
And end at:
Iron mining in this area dates back to the 1700's, which means these mines are very old and will not be easy to find without GPS.
The coordinates are for a spot where the quarries insect with a road.
