HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

This is the site of an "Old Coal Pit" marked on the first edition of the Ordnance Survey map in 1866. As such it had probably fallen into disuse at this time. It probably dates to an earlier part of the 19th century. It was sunk to mine the Fawcet Seam of coal in common with many other pits of the Doddington/Horton/Hetton area.
