Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - An old colliery is listed here on the earliest Ordnance Survey maps from the 1850s. It was linked by a footpath from Cockfield, and was likely the drift mine illustrated on later 1890s maps. Between the 1860s and 1880s a tramway was constructed from a railway under the Gaunless Viaduct to the pit. North End Colliery later used it after this mine was abandoned.
