To be found on Twiggs 1827 plan of Ripley as Coopercote Level. The drainage level (known as Coppice Sough) is dated on the plan to 1760 and is clearly labelled "Driven to drain the Ripley top hard coals". The outfall of the drainage level (Sough tail) was to be found at Waingroves but has been lost however the earthworks of the pond it once fed can still be seen below the entrance area. The NGR quoted is for the approx entrance site.
