OS records this trig (Bolt and Mast) destroyed October 1980. Whole site of the former mine has been transformed into a country park and is a popular local walking area.

(926) Marked as destroyed in 1980. Area now a country park. Plenty of folks out dog walking and a few out brambling. No marker for Number 3, but the location is just passed the car park, so easily reached. Did spot another pillar-like mine cap whilst exploring the park.

As noted below, there's no marker for where head shaft 3 stood. It's all a nice country park now. The two markers above the shafts are in a field just behind the car park, only one has a plaque.

The site has been transformed into a country park. Colliery buildings all gone but two outsize, trig-shaped, mine caps noted. One very close to the grid ref for the destroyed trig, the other further to E. Both appear to have had plaques, now missing.
