Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A small working named Esther Pit stood on the edge of Hill Top village, connected by railway to Lintz Colliery and the NER Consett Branch. The working was modest - a small shaft, winding house and auxiliary building formed the site along with two sidings to transport coal. It was connected by footpath to the road between Hill Top and Mountsett. The colliery appears on the 1890s maps and is shown disused by the late 1910s.
