2. Remains of early blast furnaces built in the 1750s. Some curved brick walling is visible but the area is much broken up. On the original list it was described as having "semi-circular headed opening into hillside with iron supporting ribs". This must have been the adit to a coalmine which has since been obliterated though it might still be intact underground. The area would need to be excavated for proper identification.
