Collapsed mineshaft below Friarfold Rake
Collapsed mineshaft below Friarfold Rake
The area above Hard Level Gill is particularly rich in old mineworkings, including many old mineshafts whose top sections have collapsed like this one. These are not individually identified even on the largest scale maps, but this one is associated with the Friarfold Rake Vein and its complex branches. Many of these shafts are thought to pre-date the hushes, and are thought to be 18th century and earlier.
