Brown Heath Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)

'Old Shafts' are shown on the 1909 map but the colliery is not mentioned untill 1928 & has gone by 1937.
Edward Swift sank the shaft circa 1914 at Brown Heath & became under manager there. He also sank the shaft in Tanners Wood that linked up with Brown Heath.
The colliery was linked by a tramway to Billinge Collieries Siding on the L.M.S.R Lancashire Union Line.The colliery closed in 1934
