HER Info (unless otherwise noted)
Circular crop-mark feature, probably marking the location of a disused shaft, one of many features associated with mining in the area visible as crop marks on aerial photographs. Dating is uncertain, but coal mining is known to have been carried out in the area from at least the early 17th century and is very likely to have been practiced earlier. Small workings of this sort may have been exploited up to the late 19th century. Jocky Pit, Number 1 (Coal). It is out of use on the 2nd edition OS mapping, 1895 survey.
