Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A coal level was situated around 100m south of Dunkirk farm, north of Low Brunton. It is illustrated only on the 1850s Ordnance Survey - either forgotten or covered by the 1890s. It was connected directly by a footpath leading from Low Brunton to East Cocklaw, implying it was exploited for local use rather than for profit. Given its simplicity, this is a certainty. Interestingly it is not shown as disused.

There is no obvious trace of the level on aerial imagery.
