A possible extraction pit of likely post-medieval to modern date is visible as an earthwork pit on aerial photographs of 1946 onwards, to the northeast of Treasbeare Farm. The elongated shaped feature is first symbolised on the Parish Tithe Map of approximately 1838-48, within an area where other such similar features are depicted. It measures approximately 37m in length by 15m in width and remains faintly visible as an earthwork pit on Lidar-derived images of 2005, although has been almost completely levelled.
