Description (or HER record listing)

A discrete scatter of post medieval coal workings: coal pits and/or small spoil heaps, are visible as earthworks, cropmarks and soilmarks on historical and recent air photos. These remains are located in the fields to the north-west of Pegswood. They take the form of small pits, some with rings of spoil, the spoil alone or just dark stains in the soil. It appears that all of the above ground remains have now been levelled but elements, including any pit shafts may survive below ground.
