Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - Site of an exploratory drift mine related to Ventners Hall Colliery (Robin Rock drift), however there is little further information on this. The entrance to the drift can still be seen complete with 'HILDA DRIFT' carved into the stone at the location, along with 'JUNE 9(??)'. Sadly the rest isn't clear. (Thanks to Dave King for info)
