The levels associated with south vein and both east and west cross veins are long gone and the level driven into north vein was blasted in by the lease owners. I seem to remember it was first blown in sometime in the 70s but was dug out which meant the second time it was blown a series of charges was set for a good way along the roof making a dig impossible without heavy machinery.

Story I heard was that Cambokeels blasted the entrance??
Hearsay of course Big Grin

The photos in the Beamish Collection although titled Heights Mine would appear to be of Park Burn Shaft a little to the South(NY921388) which although not very clear plainly show the old Weardale Leyland coach that was used there for an office etc. IP: 81.159.226.122
