Coal from Harriseahead
Coal has been mined from both Mow Cop and Harriseahead for many years. One of the few local features that still remains, although not always obvious the Tramway, that ran from Stone Trough Colliery through Mow Cop and down to Kent Green Wharf. There were other pits in the area as well. Some are covered in the Mow Cop pages, however with both Mow Cop, Harriseahead and Dales Green all being geographically in close then a certain merger of subjects inevitably will take place. With history and human nature being what they are, unfortunatly most of what is recorded is bad news. Nothing has changed
