Building shown on late 19th and early 20th century Ordnance Survey maps, and marked 'Magazine'. It probably dates from the late 1860s, due to the mine's expansion from the Bedford Consols area to Gawton Quay, and the use of King's Shaft as the main working and winding site. When last seen in the 1990s, the only remains were a part of the south-east wall within a hedge. Other details: Figures 8, 36, site 70.
