Monument record MDR12053 - Coal mine shafts, Wild Moor, Hartington Upper Quarter

Type and Period (1)

  • (Georgian to Victorian - 1800 AD to 1900 AD)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

On the gentle slope above the stream are five bell pits sunk into the Ringinglow coal seam, which was presumably discovered in the stream bed nearby. Any date in the 17th to 19th centuries should be considered for extraction. They are not on Farey's list of mines published in 1811, thus are unlikely to have been active at that date. (1)
