Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A coal shaft was/is situated a few metres from Cross Lane, near the Black Burn. It is one of around half a dozen situated around the burn, though it is difficult to ascertain if this was an older working or ventilation.

It was disused by the 1850s, but was still extant through to the mid 20th century which may mean it still remains today. It is in a small enclosed wooded area.

The site of the shaft can be seen in the small cluster of trees in the centre of the shot. Source: Historic England Photograph: raf_cpe_uk_2352_rp_3357 flown 04/10/1947
