Description (or HER record listing)

Historic Ordnance Survey map evidence shows the position of Landsale Pit (Coal).

The pit was operational well into the mid 20th century given the existence of buildings on the site. It was a plot of a few dozen feet with one central L shaped building, presumably featuring the shaft. It was also in a small wooded area on Harlowgreen Lane. This has since been renamed Easedale Gardens, and the plot is the triangular piece of land below Binsby Gardens.

The pit was likely exploited for local use, hence the 'landsale' name.

There is no trace today.
