Tyne and Wear HER(5925): Newcastle, Town Moor, mine shaft - Details
Newcastle, Town Moor, mine shaft
Mine Drainage and Ventilation Site
A badly damaged ring-bank which is bisected by a pathway. There is a central hollow measuring 0.2 metres deep with a counterscarp bank 0.6 metres high on the west. This shaft does not fit into an organised pattern - it is likely to be a one-off mine or test digging.
