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.
