One of several adits in the Ironbridge Gorge area, this one is believed to have been worked for 'Walkers Earth' (a 'clay' formerly used in washing, soothing babies bottoms, and ladies face powder etc.). It is shown as 'Mouth of Level' on the 1849 Tithe Map. As possible ventilation chimney flue survives near the level entrance.[WARNING: Like many levels in the Gorge this one is prone to bad air and is gated for safety reasons]
