Catherine and Jane Consols Mine
In 2003 at the suggestion of David Bick the Trust carried out a “rescue project” at Catherine & Jane Consols mine. The 35 foot Bigland’s wheel-pit was being eroded by a stream that had made its course into and through the wheel-pit over the years since the mine closed. We diverted the stream away from the wheel-pit.
Over the next two summers we carried out vegetation clearance, followed by a survey and minor archaeological investigations, when several interesting features were discovered.
