Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - Very little info on this working but it appears the drift mine utilised a pre-existing shaft from the 19th century. The name is taken from the 'Robinrock Plantation' nearby and there are various other coal shafts too. It looks to be short lived as there are no obvious traces on Ordnance Survey maps apart from a cluster of unnamed buildings on the 1952 edition.
