Worked from 1890 until 1916, and reported to have nine shafts. I rather expect most of them exploratory and outlying from the main site. There were two main shafts, No 1, downcast, 9 feet diameter and sunk for 157 yards, with “Deep Seam” at 140 yards. So the bottom obviously formed a sump for pumping from. The no 2 upcast was similar but 12 feet diameter.
It was operated by Essington Farm Colliery, later Sneyd Colliery, to which it had underground connections..
As can be seen from the map it was served by both canal and railway between which it was sandwiched, and had its own canal basin. Today it’s just a badly overgrown piece of land, not even any obvious sign of spoil. Up until a few years ago there was an interpretation board, now gone.
