Centred SX 54547970. Approximately 3.2 hectares of streamworking remains flank an unnamed tributary of the Youldon Brook between SX 54677949 and SX 54397995. The remains consist of the characteristic linear spoil heaps separated by now dry water channels on both banks of the stream. The working is bounded by a steeply cut tinners cliff up to 3.0 metres high. There are no associated structures within this working (citing Probert, S. A. J., 25/08/2004, English Heritage Field Investigation).
