Two coal pits at SK 236 849 on Stanage Edge that are very well established. The most southernly pit is roughly 20m x 20m and is created by a massive piled stone bank all around the shaft. The shaft is some 10m x 10m, existing as a hollow that is some 4m deep. The stacked stone is not ganging, but instead appears as a rough bank. The second pit that lies to the north has the same ganging that occupies and area of 15m x 20m. The shaft is around 8m x 6m and is some 3.5m deep. (1)
