County Northamptonshire
Date opened Unknown
Date closed October 1968
Location In the North West corner of a field, 65 yards North of modern farm buildings on the North side of the old A427
Description OPEN Only the access shaft remains. It retains some of its green paint but the hatch is missing and the ladder is buckled. The shaft is filled with water and rubbish five feet down. The landowner was considering demolition in 1999 as he considered it an eyesore and in the way, he was not aware of its former use. He has now changed his mind and would like to restore the post. In 2002 he pumped it dry and intends to restore the post. The above ground part of the ventilation shaft has been located buried in a field nearby and will be reinstated.
Date of Visit 17.7.1999
