Description

The monument consists of the remains of an industrial monument, dating to the 18th or 19th century and includes a group of relict coal shaft mounds.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of 18th or 19th century industrial practices. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. An industrial monument may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is roughly 100m long by 15m wide and irregularly shaped. It is bounded on the S by the adjacent stream, on the W by an existing field boundary and on the N by the break of the slope at the end of the woods. The boundary to the E is where the plot of land narrows on a bend in the stream, 70m upstream of the ford.
