Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A pit was located between Valepit Houses and Northside Farm through the 19th century, though closed by the 1890s. It is unknown whether this was associated with Mount Moor Colliery or a smaller rudimentary working. It appears to be visible on the map surveyed in 1857 though is unlabelled, indicating it may be much older.
