Stodart Hush
Stodart Hush
Stodart Hush is a remarkable feature, a relic of old lead mining days.
Hushing was a method of exploration for and to an extent extraction of, metal ores, primarily galena, lead sulphide.
Water was collected and retained by a dam which was then breached and the water allowed to rush down a hillside where it would tear away vegetation, soil and rock creating the hoped for exposure of a mineral vein. Many cycles of hushing would have been required to create a cavity such as Stodart Hush.
