Lilleshall Mine

NGR SJ734165

The quarries at Colliers Side originally worked the shallower beds opencast but the workings were eventually continued underground with inclines linking them to the tramways above. The extracted waste material was used to build great embankments across the quarry in which kilns were built, as well as two tunnels for access. Tramways ran along the top of the embankment to feed the kilns and to carry material to the canal
