long stones in dry construction. Walls about 40 cm. high form enclosure about
one by 5 metres; opening at south end from which water drained after washing
lead ore. With the knocking wall and bingstead to the south, a complete and

early C18 to 1861. ( Information from Ian Forbes, Durham County Council).
