East Coanwood Colliery

East Coanwood Colliery
The Engine Pit here was sunk in 1869 to a depth of 521ft. In 1894 the colliery was worked by the Coanwood Coal Co, but it seems to have closed in 1895 or 1896. On site today there is a spoil tip, engine beds and capped shaft, and an ancillary building. The tramway can be traced back towards the site of Coanwood Colliery where there were screens and a connection to the standard gauge railway.
