Full description

Unknown, Unknown (Migrated Record). SDV331.

Vis=15/5/1992 (gerrard) a tin prospecting gully and leat are situated at sx57667170. Both have caused limited damage to the prehistoric stone alignments through which they were cut. The gully measures 3m wide, 1.6m deep and trends se-nw across the monument. Banks on either side of the trench indicate that it was largely dug by hand and should therefore not be confused with the better known prospecting hushes associated with the lead industry. The leat was used to carry water to a nearby tin stamping mill at black tor falls (mpp).
