MONUMENT NO. 1446246

DESCRIPTION + /

Earthwork remains of post-Medieval tin prospecting pits arranged in clusters and alignments within the vicinity of Claziwell Openwork. The features extend from the east of the flooded openwork, west along the plateau towards the head of Raddick Lane. Fieldwork in 2006 found the pits had diameters of between 2 metres and 5 metres, were up to 2 metres deep, and had small spoil collars. However, a group of pits near the openwork were much larger, with diameters of up to 14 metres and maximum depths of 3 metres. These were certainly used for tin extraction.
