North Rake Hush
North Rake Hush
North Rake Hush is a fine example of an old method of mining where dammed water was allowed to rush down a hillside, probably on the line of an already existing watercourse. The flood would tear away surface material - soil and vegetation - hopefully to expose and loosen deposits of mineral which would then be excavated. Hushes would be repeatedly worked in that way giving rise to such remarkable features as North Rake Hush.
