Coal Holes and their Ghosts

After noticing the two blocked coal holes in the first photograph I set about trying to find and photograph as many ex-coal holes as I could within easy walking distance of my home. Most of these coal holes were located in the back walls of terraced house yards, with others seemingly opening straight into coal sheds or the backs of some houses. All can be found by walking the back alleyways that divide the rows of houses.
Between September and December 2023 I located evidence of what I believe to be 136 blocked up coal holes, shown here in 102 photographs.
Some coal holes are obvious, some less so.
