A quite separate and much smaller coalfield is situated in the Wenning valley in the northeast of the county but is referred to as a part of the Ingleton Coalfieldthe main part of which is in North Yorkshire. See also. The Romans may have been the first to use coal in Lancashire and its shallow seams and outcrops were exploited on a small scale from the Middle Ages and extensively after the start of the Industrial Revolution. The construction of the first cotton mill in off Lob Lane now Clitheroe Road close to the Marsden coal pitled to the massive growth of the settlement during the mid nineteenth century. Some coal owners, including William Hulton, paid their workers with tokens or vouchers that could only be redeemed in their company shops, a practice outlawed by the Truck Act

The Victoria County History has several disparaging descriptions of the Wigan area in the early 20th century. This led to increased demand for coal and larger, deeper mines. End of deep mining In the s the NCB began closing collieries, some with workable coal reserves, by setting impossible production targets and by just 21 pits remained. Helens Lancashire was at the forefront of innovation in coal mining from James Brindley 's water wheel at Wet Earth Colliery to the Duke of Bridgewaters's underground canals. There was demand for coke in the foundries and coke-ovens were built next to some larger collieries, steam coal was required for the cotton mills, chemical works, engineering works, and for locomotive fuel, house coal had a large market in a heavily populated area. Transport Transport of coal was difficult; roads were poor and carting heavy loads made them worse.

West Lancs and Formby were two of the 24 clubs who were instrumental in setting up what is now recognised as the first British Amateur Championship - held at Royal Liverpool in The Oldham Coalfield extends to the south and becomes the Cheshire Coalfield.

More women were employed in this capacity in Lancashire than on any other coalfield. In the Burnley area output from the thin seams towards the north of the coalfield was small.
