Information from [1], via Miss Smith (NCM).

No house of this name on 'The Quay' 3 November 1974; in fact there are only a couple of houses amongst the buildings here, and none found on East Quay either.

4 January 1977. In fact this house is/was in 'Croft's Yard', approximately at the grid reference given.
E. Rose (NAU).

'Windynook' is in fact the house now called 'Crugmeer' (NHER 18632), so the pit would have been to the west of it.
