23/116 Disused furnace 40
metres south-east of
Furnace Cottage
II

Furnace chamber, mid C19. Squared rubble. Stone wall with a square-headed
doorway opening into a barrel-vaulted chamber built into the hillside. A
furnace here was used to draw air up an adjacent mineshaft, now capped (a
semicircular embayment in the roadside wall probably represents the head of
the shaft), and improve air circulation in the lead workings beneath.
