Structure


East of Coach Road, where the ground falls away steeply, is a stone-lined portal (the entrance to an adit) which is 2m below the road. The adit also appears to be of dry-stone construction and is thought to have served as an underground watercourse carrying away water which was raised from the mine workings by the water-powered pumps (see HER 1663).
