Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A 2nd Barcombe Colliery appears on maps from the 1890s through the 20th century. It appears to have its own internal tramway system, with a track between a horizonal shaft and an associated group of buildings nearby. A level is shown on this site in the 1860s, though is not connected to the Crindledyke Waggonway, so it appears the owners of Barcombe Colliery 'upgraded' this site once the first pit finished work.

The NCB did not take over this pit in the 1940s. It was likely considered too small and local to consume.
