The sett worked the northern end of the Caleb Bell Cross-course to the south-west of the woodland of Coed-y-fron. There is little evidence of workings in the woodland; a line of shafts can be traced southwards from SJ18307555, SJ18307550, SJ18317548, SJ18307545, SJ18307540, SJ18287538 following a north-south vein. They may be later workings than Coed-y-fron on the same sett.
