The monument comprises the remains of a ventilation furnace dating to the 19th century. The structure housed a brazier for ventilating a nearby drift mine. The entry to a level is immediately adjacent, with the base of a small haulage engine in front of it, and coal tip downhill of the furnace.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of the early nineteenth century coal mining industry. The structures may be expected to contain archaeological information in regard to chronology, building techniques and functional detail. A colliery may be part of a larger cluster of industrial monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
