Located in the southerly of two notable rakes, an 8m deep shaft led to a small collapsed chamber with shaft of 7m below. Deep rope-cut grooves in the entrance shaft indicated that it was once a far deeper working. It was filled with rubbish in 1970-75 when the rake was levelled.

Alternate Names: None recorded.
