A number of levels are recorded as being present (possibly 3) and aerial photographs show what may be a number of shallow trials and shaft-mounds on the higher slopes on both sides of the stream. All workings are now backfilled.

No evidence

Manual processing is presumed although there is a lack of evidence on site. Machinery (presumably for processing) is believed to have been present on the site up to the time of the second world war.

Other features
There are earthwork remains of a single stone built structure at SO17097985 surviving at foundation level. It is not clear whether this is related to mining or farming activity.
