HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

NEHL - Two shafts are shown as working on the 1857 Ordnance Survey just north of the village of Medomsley. Facilities were rudimentary and coal was likely extracted by hand. By the 1898 Ordnance Survey the mine was disused and later disappeared.

'Sketches of The Coal Mines in Northumberland and Durham' T.H.Hair, published in 1844
