A 13m deep mineshaft entered a roomy natural chamber, up to 7m high and 2m wide. A short extension to the west was choked with mud and rock and to the east a small passage choked after 7m. Both chokes probably connected with other shafts leading to the surface. The mine was formed along a fault displaying up to ten inches of fault breccia. Rope-cut grooves in the entrance shaft were amongst the deepest discovered on Mendip suggesting that it was once a far deeper working. The mine was explored in the 1980s by Chris Richards (ACG) and Alan Dougherty (MCG) and subsequently obliterated when the field was levelled.
