HER Info (unless otherwise noted)
NEHL - South Shildon Colliery sat on a small parcel of rectangular land south of New Shildon on the A6072. It only existed for a couple of decades, indicating it wasn't particularly abundant with resources and was no longer viable for the NCB to work. A small heap and 3 colliery buildings were the only extant features, one with an Ordnance Survey benchmark.
