Notes about this historic site

1 Here a short arm is served by a mineral railway which itself joins the main railway line. Adjacent to the arm is marked a shaft (disused) and the West Midlands Waterways survey notes the existence of a weight restriction sign. The wharf is to the north of the arm with the coliery rail lines stil extant and at the terminus, the remains of a metal-framed building. The arm appears deep, but is blocked by sunken narrowboats. There is a two storey red and yellow brick wharf cottage and a number of mooring points.
