Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A cluster of coal shafts are visible on the 1850s Ordnance Survey maps. There were around 5 directly south of Brady's Crag north of the B6318, but were not labelled on later editions. It is not known when these shafts were in use, but given they are illustrated as disused in the 1850s, they may have been operating earlier in the century.

At least 3 of the shafts are still visible on satellite imagery as earthworks, meaning the shafts are in situ.
