Ovenpipe Shaft is located in the middle of a farmyard next to the old Count House and is completely blocked. Nearby are the remains of the small engine house that worked it and a chimney. At the rear of the new barn is an arched tunnel which used to house the balance bob for the capped Watson’s Shaft. This is the deepest shaft in the orefield at 1690ft and is blocked a short distance down. A recent descent found a level just above the blockage which connects to both Ovenpipe and New Shafts. At the rear is the large engine house for the pumping engine and an octagonal chimney. Much of the area has been acquired by the Shropshire Mines Trust for preservation.On the uphill side of the road, behind the cottage, was Lewis's Shaft, now filled and landscaped as part of a garden. What appears to be an open arched adit behind pottery is actually a potato store. A short open adit on the hillside opposite to the pottery has a tight inclined drop of unknown depth. There is said to be a shaft on the site of the workshop next to the pottery which has been filled. New Shaft is located a short distance along the road to Bog on the right hand side. It has trees growing out of the top and there is an engine base adjacent. It was descended in 1993 to a blockage at 200ft. The path to it leads across the dam of the mine reservoir.
