Description (or HER record listing)
NEHL - A small drift mine was located north west of Dans Castle from at least the 1890s to the 1910s. It is possible this drift connected to the workings for the old Inkerman Colliery, which had closed by the 1870s and abandoned. The drift featured 3 small ancillary buildings above ground with no tramway into the shaft, just a modest horizontal shaft next to the local reservoir.
By the 1910s the drift was abandoned.
