Early coal mine, Littledale. The timber props, which were used to hold up the mine roof, are still in existence today, approximately 170 years after they were first put to use. This Littledale mine differs from the coal mines situated in Wrays vicinity in that waste has been removed to make the tunnel higher. In Wrays coal mines only coal was removed. The thickness of the seams could account for this difference; Wrays coal seams were 16 to 19 inches thick, however the coal seams in the Littledale mine were much narrower at approximately nine inches.
