HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

A further coal mine has been noted in this area; it is likely Post Medieval in date. This was shown to be working in 1865-1866 at the time of the Ordnance Survey mapping of the area. In 1898-1899, the time of the second edition, it is not shown so was presumably inactive at this time.
