Tyne and Wear HER(2018): North Shields, Shaft - Details
North Shields, Shaft
Mine Drainage and Ventilation Site
A shaft, with what appear to be relatively extensive spoil heaps around it, is shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan. It is shown as an ‘Old Shaft’ on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan, so was out of use by 1895.
