Description :
A very short-lived colliery, sunk in 1854 and closed in 1862. There are substantial remains of several finely built structures of dressed sandstone: a beam pumping engine house, a winding engine house, a chimney, and other walls and minor features. The beam engine house is complete almost to gable height, but lintels have begun to fail on one side. There is a small amount of coal spoil on the site, and at the bottom of the slope is a stone built tipping stage adjoining the route of the Swansea Canal.
The site is of particular importance in showing the complete surface layout of a colliery of the mid C19th, undisturbed by subsequent alterations or redevelopment.
The whole area is currently disused and overgrown.
