Coppice Colliery (Brownhills Common) Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)


There were numerous small pits being worked in the late 19th Cent on Brownhills Common under the name of Coppice Colliery, the spoil tips of the nos 1 and 3 plants can still be seen in the trees south of Chester Road North. They also had a plant to the north and west of the Wilkin Road.
Apart from the aforementioned spoil tips there is a single small brick lined shaft open for a few feet and probably part of the no 3 plant at about SK036061 and at the head of well defined tips.
Today the common is a public open space, but a local person recounted childhood memories of the whole area south of the Rising Sun being riddled with shafts. Many are not shown on maps or accounted for.
