Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A small unnamed colliery is illustrated on the 25 inch Ordnance Survey of 1921. The site had two separate drifts, both connected by railway. The tramway was extensive, connecting various drift mines between High and Low Stonechester, and west to a coal working site near Marsfield. This area is littered with tramways and waggonways dating from around the 1880s, though it appears many of the workings had died out or depleted by the 1900s.
