Full description

Ordnance Survey, 1989, OS/89162, OS/89162 V 662-663 08-MAY-1989 (Aerial Photograph). SDV356894.

Environment Agency, 1998-2014, LiDAR DTM data (1m resolution), LIDAR ST0504 Environment Agency DTM 01-JAN-1998 to 30-SEP-2014 (Cartographic). SDV359177.

The pit was not visible as an earthwork.

A roughly circular pit circa 48 metres in diameter was visible as an earthwork on aerial photograph of 1989.
The visible earthworks 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.
The pit was not identifiable as an earthwork on digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2014 and has probably been levelled.
