Lead (1902-1904)

Carboniferous Limestone.

Returns for lead were entered (Burt et al 1992) for 1902-1904, but the sett remains in an area of early lead mining and quarrying. The sett lies on the extreme south of the Golch Hill Vein, a string of the main Milw Vein. Evidence remains as a large shaft at SJ16957575, with a further mound to the south at SJ16957500. The site is crossed to the north by the earthworks of the Quarry incline. The shaft mounds to the south east at SJ17057565 may relate to the Gladstone sett.
