HER Info

The remains of two old coal pits are visible as earthworks in the small patch of open ground known as Hartley Square. These coal workings, in the form of two rings of spoil that indicate the location of shafts, can be seen on lidar imagery. They appear to cut and overlay medieval ridge and furrow.
