Sandford Hill, Sandford.
|NGR:||ST 42738 59158|
This site was opened by William Beard in 1838 while looking for bones. It was still open in 1863 when geologist James Parker applied to work at the site he described as 'an old mining shaft'.
Alternate Names: Churchill Bone Cave, Sandford Hill Bone Fissure
Notes: The location of this fissure is unknown although it is possible that Pearl Mine, Elephant Cave and the Sandford Bone Fissure are all one and the same. However, there are so many shafts, trenches and other mined features on Sandford Hill, that it is impossible to say with any certainty.
