RemainsShaft and adit clearly visible with ladders descending into winze. (1954) Workings reported flooded [Evans 2002].

In 1864 the intended formation of a company was announced to develop a lead lode that had just been cut in a drivage from a shaft 20 fathoms deep [Bick 1990: 23]. It was listed as producing manganese 1869–1877 [Down 1980: 7]. An abandonment plan was published February 1877 [GAS DRO: 1240] and it is unlikely that it was worked after that date.
