Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A shaft is illustrated at Cuthbert's Hill on 1890s Ordnance Survey Maps and is confirmed by the listing by the Coal Authority. Unfortunately there is no indication when or who this shaft was constructed for, or if it was part of a wider colliery network. There is also a shaft to the north east with a small pond, so there may have been a working here pre-1850s.
