Documentary Evidence


A hill said to be surrounded by a ditch and outer bank. Suggested as an area with potential 17th century coal workings including shafts, adits and wagonways. Several features were identified upon inspection, but these were all much later and of minor importance. There may be important undisturbed underground workings on the site.
