Fairly extensive area of hushes, opencuts and spoil tips with several old hillside adits remaining. The spoil tips are dominated by large amounts of Sphalerite which, as with other mines in the area, was discarded by the early 18th and 19th century Lead miners. With patience, some good crystals of Sphalerite can be recovered from the spoil
