HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Post-medieval coal workings comprising a network of wagonways leading to discrete coal pits and spoil heaps are visible as soilmarks on historical air photos. The remains to the north of the railway line have been built over, some of those to the south have been destroyed by open cast mining.
