Full description

Transcriptions of an earthwork pit and associated spoil heap visible on aerial photographs RAF/540/483/4242-3 correspond with a database record of a post-medieval mine shaft to the south-west of Broadwell Farm. The earthworks were probably outliers of the George and Charlotte Mine, the closest elements of which sit less than 200m to the south-west.
