Dear All,
 
Things brings the matter onto such mines as Ash Gill Head. It is  obviously 
clear it is a geographic place, but, apart from old outlying small  fell farms 
there is no village or substantial place nearby. So, the  supposed 
superstition(s) with all tree named places may well have naturally  'migrated' to the 
mines. The names of farms are also an indicator, with many  mines in Mid-Wales (& 
elsewhere of course), having the same name as the farm  who's land they are 
on/within - and the names of mountains/hills carrying over  as well.
 
The huge number of collieries also have the same wide range of names... but  
we won't go down that route as the subject will go on and on!!!
 
Regards, Bernard
