Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A coal shaft was located fairly close to Farnacres Colliery at Gateshead. It was abandoned by the 1850s, but lied in situ until the 40s. Industrial workings destroyed the shaft around this date leaving no trace, but it can be seen on aerial images from 1945.
