Description: At first I thought I had stumbled upon a Tinners’ Hut, but it looks more like some kind of support wall of waste granite that resulted in a pit. It certainly doesn’t look like a safe place to sleep – although I guess it has been there for quite a long time. I have come to the conclusion that this must be a tinners’ cache – but need to research this further. I can think of no other purpose!
