Tyne and Wear HER(5923): Newcastle, Town Moor, mine shaft - Details
Newcastle, Town Moor, mine shaft
Mine Drainage and Ventilation Site
A very well-preserved ring-bank of spoil measuring 19 metres north to south and 15.5 metres transversely, the central hollow is 0.8 metres deep. This shaft does not fit into an organised pattern - it is likely to be a one-off mine or test digging.
