The monument consists of the remains of a coal mine probably dating to the early eighteenth century to the 1860s. It consists of a group of well preserved relict shaft mound features: hollows and spoil heaps that indicate the use of small bell-pits for the primitive digging of anthracite seams near to the surface.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance and illustrate our knowledge and understanding of the development of the coalmining industry in Wales. It retains significant archaeological potential, with the strong possibility of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A caol mine 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.
