Dowgang Burn Coal Mine (United Kingdom)


Dowgang Burn Coal Mine, Nenthead, OD Ref 77554275.

The name in the title of this entry may not be the actual name of this coal mine, and I have named it after it's location along the burn.

There are 4 adits to the mine workings, all have fallen in, but it is still possible to see their original locations.

A shaft that can be accessed intersects one of the levels, but has not been explored.

A number of surface features and the remains of road ways, ore trucks, rails, wheels can be seen all over the site. The spoil heaps are dotted with fossils.
