Tyne and Wear HER(5921): Newcastle, Town Moor, mine shaft - Details
Newcastle, Town Moor, mine shaft
Mine Drainage and Ventilation Site
A very shallow depression with a surrounding bank of spoil on the south-east side. It lies in amongst the scarps of the putative prehistoric settlement (HER 5895). It is debatable whether this is indeed a shaft head or some other disturbance of the ground. This shaft does not fit into an organised pattern - it is likely to be a one-off mine or test digging.
