An irregularly shaped pit up to circa 43 by 29 metres in size was visible as an earthwork on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014.
The visible earthwork did not correspond with any pit features depicted in this location on the 19th century mapping available to the survey. This supports the interpretation that the visible earthworks are the remains of an extractive that pit had passed out of use prior to the mid-to-late 19th century.
