Description (or HER record listing)

Remains associated with coal workings and a colliery site, including two large spoil heaps and buildings are visible as earthworks and structures on air photos taken in 1947. These remains are not depicted on Ordnance Survey maps published 1864, 1898, 1924 or 1947 (revised 1938), so they are likely to be of mid 20th century date. The Coal Board records a mine entry shaft known as Nelson Shaft at this location. Although parts of the spoil heaps survive as earthworks most other features appear to have been levelled and relandscaped.
