Site Event/Activity record EEM14658 - 2015: TS - Carnarvon New Pit
The site was subject to survey work in 2015 in advance of proposed consolidation and new fencing work, following the removal of a larch plantation in 2012. This recorded and identified the remains of mining from four distinct phases. Numerous small, circular pits represent extraction of iron ore in the Roman and/or early medieval periods; large openwork trenches were probably worked in the later medieval and/or early post-medieval periods. The remains of several structures from 19th Century iron mining at Carnarvon New Pit date from two periods: 1866-1872 and 1873-1883.
