Long Acre Mine

Long Acre Mine

Longacre Mine was situated close to the present Hollybush Industrial Estate.
Near where the new Asda supermarket is being built. The 286 foot shaft was in operation from 1876 till closure in 1954. Before closure the workings were taken over by North Skelton Mine. The mine ventilating fan is to the left of this image.
