Full description

BIRD + HIRST, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV221965.

Brimpts north mine. Trial pits. Eastern group. In a roughly triangular pattern extending e from the end of the lode-back workings, the ground is pock-marked by group of approx 18 small trial pits ending in a nnw-sse alignment of pits. This alignment is parallel to the run of the adit excavations believed to have been along a cross-course and suggests that the main lode split up and terminated at a similar fault beyond which any continuation was not found. Beyond this line, at 96m from the end of the lode-back pits, is a solitary trial pit 3.4m by 2.6m (bird + hirst).
