Carboniferous Limestone.

Kelston Vein was worked to the north-west of Kelston Farm in shafts and opencuts. The sett was later worked to a deeper level by the Talacre company. A line of shafts can be followed on a north to south alignment passing to the west of Kelston Farm. The larger shafts can be located at SJ10408250, to the north-west of the farm and south of Talacre Abbey, SJ10308220 being south of the farm and to the west of the farm at SJ10308275, SJ10208265, SJ10108255 and SJ10108265. A single shaft at the southern extremity of the vein remains at SJ10258220. The shafts are either capped or filled in and appear as grassed over-mounds.
