In the side of a small shale heap is a small tunnel, perhaps some kind of shelter or storage area as this isnt a drift mine.

Away in the woods to the east is a small building, I initially though it may be a powder magazine but its not very sturdy and a 1950s map shows a meter house for the Cleveland Water Company in this area.
