A small tin prospect on Harford Moor 100m east of the River Erme. It comprises a 42 metre long gully, 2-3 metres wide, terminating in a deep circular pit 9 metres in diameter by 4 metres deep with an external spoil heap. The gully continues 60 metres down the slope before fading out. A number of small tin pits associated with this prospect have damaged a nearby prehistoric enclosure (MDV4294) though the gully itself passes it only a few metres to the north.
