HRS 1714 Cockey Moor coalfield North view of whim pit

The raised banks around the circular pit suggest a horse-whim has been used. There are traces of split coal on the ground. Possibly an 18th century coal pit. Click here for satellite image of whole site and other photo location links. http:/​/​g.​co/​maps/​mt9k7
