HER Info

Recommended as a site with potential 16th century/17th century coal workings, however no surface features were identified in this area during the field visit. No evidence of surface features, but potentially important underground Medieval mining galleries. Although no surface remains were identified this does not preclude the existence of important medieval underground workings
