Description (or HER record listing)
NEHL - There is relatively little information about this pit as it only employed dozens rather than hundreds, and was quite rural. The Charltons were originally farming landowners and mined deposits on their land. There was a few wooden houses close to the mine, and closed in the 70s. There were a number of shafts around the area. Due to its modest nature pretty much everything was done by hand.
