Tyne and Wear HER(2194): Benton Square, Air Shaft - Details
Benton Square, Air Shaft
Historic Ordnance Survey Map evidence shows an Air Shaft, possibly related to Moor Edge Colliery (HER ref. 2193), at this location. This is marked as ‘Old’ on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan so may have gone out of use before 1895.
