Abandoned coal mine near Small Shaw
There used to be a brick cabin here (on the right of the area depicted) and an adit around the centre of the photo that was an outpost of the Grime Bridge colliery used to work the Upper Mountain Mine, but that was closed before 1960. The mine here was reopened as a privately-owned concern in 1979 but closed again in 1990.
