Knight, S., 2009, Fernworthy Features (Personal Comment). SDV342939.

Two clumps of trees are sited in deep crevasses with a causeway between the two. They are possibly sites of openwork associated with the mining activity in the area. The features are on the same alignment as the spoil heaps to the west so may be exploiting the same seam of ore.
