brief description: 

Former mining heap, overgrown with locust trees, similar woody plants and shrubs. The heap is accessible from the street via a small wooden bridge, and there is a footpath. Spots with little or no vegetation, the so-called overburden (mining spoil), is still clearly visible. Small pools and puddles of mine waste have accumulated at the foot of the spoil tip.
