HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Shown on a plan of The Lands Colliery in the Five Quarter Coal, dated 1779 along with the galleries. A fault or dyke runs through Winlaton village. Says 'This dyke was tried in the Lands Colliery and found to be a considerable downcast to the east'. Hence all the pit galleries are south of the dyke.
