Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A coal pit was situated adjacent to the Scremerston Incline between the 1850s and 1890s.It is potentially earlier having been located next to an old engine house which had been demolished by the 1890s also. Little is known about this pit, however it may have been operated by Scremerston Colliery who had sunk a number of ventilation shafts from the village to the coast.

There are no remains of this shaft visible.
