Bands of very hard gritstone outcropped on the sides of the valleys and being good for building and paving was mined, rather than quarried, using the pillar and stall method. This one has never been reported, but gives an insight into a forgotten industry.
Normally partially flooded, it was visited at low tide with WIMR.

No, just 2 parallel drifts about 200m long, interconnected at each end. It looked like the good stone involved shifting more and more rubbish rock to get!
