HER Info

This Coal Pit ismarked as ‘Old’ on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan, indicating that it was probably out of use by 1858. It may have been associated with Morton Engine (HER ref. 3140) and a wagonway (HER ref. 3614). The site of the pit is marked by low, irregular grassed-over earthworks.
