Penshaw, New Winning Coal Pit
Coal Mining Site
Painshaw New Winning, Coal Pit. Marked as Old on the 1st edition OS mapping, so probably disused by 1858. A shaft with adjoining spoil, plus a rectangular pon ddepression are depicted on the map (possibly an abandoned reservoir?), but no buildings. Presumably formed part of Lambton's Pensher Colliery.
