A former extractive pit of possible post-medieval to mid-19th century date is visible as an earthwork on digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2008, to the northeast of Higher Ashculm, Hemyock. The earthwork is elongated in shape and measures approximately 32m in length by 12m in width. The visible earthworks no do correspond with any pit features depicted in this location on the available 19th century mapping. This supports the interpretation that the extractive pit had passed out of use prior to the mid to late 19th century.
