HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Painshaw New Winning, Coal Pit. Marked as Old on the 1st edition OS mapping, so probably disused by 1858. A shaft with adjoining spoil, plus a rectangular pon ddepression are depicted on the map (possibly an abandoned reservoir?), but no buildings. Presumably formed part of Lambton's Pensher Colliery.

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