Post medieval mineral extraction survives as earthworks across Dolebury Warren, including within Dolebury Hillfort (ST 45 NE 3) and is defined by small scale pits, mines and rakes, with their associated spoil heaps, which follow the east-west trending mineral seams. The miners were likely to be extracting lead, ochre or calamine all of which are to be found within the carboniferous limestone of Dolebury Warren. Previously recorded under ST 45 NE 3 - that record contains further references to the mining activities associated with Dolebury hillfort.
