Notes about this historic site

1 The first shaft of the Coventry Colliery was sunk in 1911. The colliery’s main shafts lay on the land of Newland House Farm in Exhall, but the buildings, the branch railway and other workings straddled the West Midlands (Keresley) boundary. It provided a focus of modern settlement.
