Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A coal shaft is illustrated in this location on the "Plan of Killingworth Moor in the Parish of Longbenton" by John Fryer, 1792. It is one of around a dozen dotted around the Willington and Benton Square waggonways on land owned by the Earl of Carlisle.

It was located directly next to the waggonway terminating at Benton Square, and featured no other related buildings next to it. It may have been one of the many access shafts for the same working in the immediate area.
