Description (or HER record listing)

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

NEHL - Little else is known about this pit and whether it was associated with another colliery. Little remains of this pit except discoloration of the ground where the capped shaft is likely extant under the soil.
