Listing Text


26/35 Beaumont Mine, Fawside
Level portal in wall on
east side of site

Adit portal to lead mine, mid-C19. Stone, iron. Narrow horseshoe-arched
portal with dressed stone surround in wall of squared rubble. Later concrete
infill in head of arch. Iron gate. Above portal sunk rectangular panel
with hollow-chamfered surround, plain. Work on this level commenced in 1776
but the similarity of the portal form to that of Blackett Level (1855)
suggests the entrance was reconstructed in mid-C19.
