Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - One of the extensive number of collieries in this area is Storey Lodge Colliery, which opened in the mid 19th century and closed at the turn of the 20th century. It stood on the Haggerleases branch of the North Eastern Railway and utilised 3 shafts in total. One was a drift and went out of use by the 1890s. A tramway also led to 'Harvey Drift' south of the River Gaunless. It was disused by the 1910s and the Ordnance Survey map at this time shows the land still vacant.

The boundary is still evident, though forms the grounds of a property.
