Anyone know if there is any information, books leaflets etc about the Old Iron Mines near Emley Woodhouse? There are over 100 shafts and pits marked over 3 sites.

1878 Factory Act: Quarrys are any place not being a mine in which persons work in getting slate, stone, coal or other minerals. Which begs the question: what is a mine??

Old mapping has plenty of what appear to be 'bell pits' on the east side.

Also a colliery.

These ones?

the original references are given at the end, maybe more info there. They would make a cracking photo in low lying fog or snow.

Yes, that's the ones. Great piece of information. Missed the opportunity to capture them in the recent snowfall, have to check them out on a foggy day
