8/98 Bouse hoppers 100
metres north of
Bouse hoppers for Wire Gill Lead Mine. Probably late C18. Thin courses of
dry stone rubble with oblique coping. 3 walls, c. 2 - 2.5 metres high, form
hoppers on side of fell. The top is level with track at c. 400 metres above
sea level, which follows contours from former Wire Gill Mine, the bottom at
c. 395 metres above sea level abutting a horse-shoe-plan enclosure. This
enclosure is formed by walls from ground level at front rising to c. 2.5
metres at the back. In the back are 2 small square openings at ground level,
formed by wood jambs and lintels with iron hinge-pins. From this level there
was easy access to the main track along the valley.
A rare survival of lead mining techniques.
