Description (or HER record listing)

This shaft is one of a range of small industrial sites in the Capheaton area. These shafts were a mix of bell pits and ventilation shafts to supply immediate local needs for fuel. They are impossible to date on the earthwork evidence alone if just a shaft mound - but this is probably Post Medieval; more refined dating might be provided by documentary evidence.
