In the foreground is a collapsed brick flue, and behind that (covered by a square grille and enclosed within a fence) a disused mineshaft. On Gautries Hill behind the position of a "rake" (a line of lead mines along a vein of ore) is indicated by the line of trees. Eldon Hill Quarry is in the distance to the left of this picture.
