Above Peak Forest, south east of Eldon Hill, is Jowle Grove Mine which lies along the east-west trending White Rake or Watts Grove Rake (Watts Grove mine is also nearby). A metal grill has been fitted to the large engine shaft in the place of old wooden sleepers and ginging can be seen through this. It is well constructed and ginged to a depth of perhaps 30m (100 feet), and it is a fine example of the skills of the Old Man. Alongside there are remains of a crushing circle with a broken gritstone crushing wheel.
