19th century openwork with spoil tip, fully representative of the technology of mining for this metal but not outstanding compared with others of the period in the region.

Earthwork site contributing significant to local landscape character and suited to public enjoyment and education in the form of the view from Brentor. Robust and manageable under existing regime.
