HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

High Pit. This site was recorded as its name suggests that it was the site of a coal mine. However, on the 1st edition OS mapping it looks like just farm buildings. This is the same grid reference as Restoration Pit of St Anthony's Colliery (HER 6941), which opened before 1769. Could Restoration Pit and High Pit be one and the same?
