Possible site of West Kenton Colliery. There is a spoil heap shown here on Ordnance Survey first edition.The pit is shown with a wagonway on Lambert's map of 1807, but it is likely that West Kenton Colliery is of similar date to East Kenton, which was in operation in operation in 1770. Shown on Oliver's map of 1851 as "Clark's Winnings".
