Lead side vein workings and shafts at Pin Dale. The side veins represent a form of opencut lead mining. The side veins are a series of narrow slits some only 0.4m wide cut by hand from the surface of the limestone crag into lead bearing veins. These vary in length and are upto 3m long, in some cases the lead has been worked around core blocks of limestone. In some tool marks are visible. There are also verticle shafts which are either open or marked by shaftmounds. There are spoil heaps associated with both the mounds and the shafts. Scheduled.
