Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A coal level (horizonal shaft) is illustrated on the 1850s Ordnance Survey at the northern extremity of Spital Tongues. It is likely this is related to Spital Tongues Colliery just south, perhaps as an extra means of access or to allow for easy transportation of coal before the Victoria Tunnel was constructed. There are no remains, and the site is now part of a residential estate.
