Old mine shaft near Gibbon Hill
Old mine shaft near Gibbon Hill
The tops of mine shafts often show well on moorland as they are surrounded, as here, by a grassed-over collar of mine spoil. The shaft seen here appears not to be open but is probably sealed in some rudimentary way - to walk on its base might be unwise. It's possible of course that the shaft was of no great depth. The dumped timber surely has no connection with the mine's history but is simply a mass of old fencing wood dumped there.
