 Record Name Elling Hearth or Chopwood Kiln
 Record Description One of the best preserved elling hearths or chopwood kilns yet recorded. This surviving structure can be compared directly to the example excavated by Tom Gledhill in Ivelet Wood. This elling hearth is of characteristic plan, with the kiln surviving as undisturbed dry stone walling to a height of a metre. A small stone walled bund is recessed into the slope adjacent and there is a level working platform in front. A small track leads upward towards the small Mine Shop below the Adelaide Level but is highly eroded at the stream.
