Thanks

I have a few more from some of the other mines around Tynehead but currently I'm trying to find out if Tyne Boggs (tm Ray Fairbairn) or Tyne Boys (tm John Lawson) is the mine just south of Dosey.

Shield meadow High Level NY 7603.3692 Collapsed
Low Level NY7601.3696 Blocked at 6 metres.


Just as a recap Pete, Ray Fairbairn seems to give different designations to all the levels except Low and there is a level shown on the 1859 25in map, but not that I can see on Ray or your list (NY 76063 36632).

I think I'll visit again on a day of better weather.
