Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - There are 2 coal shafts visible on the first edition of the Ordnance Survey at Dunston Hill. They were labelled as old by this time, so may date to the 18th century or old. They could also have been part of the Elizabethan coal working at this site, though this is a matter of conjecture.

The shaft had disappeared by the 1890s.
