The Ragman Vein in Carboniferous Limestone.

The Ragman sett worked the area that now forms the boundary of the Limestone Quarry. The north-eastern boundary of the quarry is a series of open workings following the limestone outcrops. The narrow walls remain in trees of a likely cottage or mine related building at SJ25555225, and a large shaft lies to the south of it at SJ25545224. The present road to the quarry may cut through the Ragman Mine sett. The Minera Quarry sett worked the Ragman Vein in this area also.The large shaft immediately to the west of the quarry road at SJ25375230, has a large platform area adjacent to it inferring use of an engine.

The mineral railway ran to the quarry area.

No evidence other than the platform area at SJ25375230.
