Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A small drift mine was in operation here after the 1860s and closed before the 1890s. It utilised a small wagonway system which may have extended south to another waggonway which is suggested on Railmaponline. It may have also been part of the wider Cornsay Colliery network of mines.
