HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

This is the general location of Biteabout Colliery. This was worked from a single shaft and exploited a number of different coal seams. It is when the mine was originally dug or 'sunk' to the coal. The mine closed before 1902. It may have only operated for a few years between the second edition Ordnance Survey mapping of the area in 1899 and 1902. A number of other coal bell pit mines were operated in the same area.
