Willington Old Engine Pit
Wallsend, North Tyneside
8 Sept 2021
An Old Engine Pit, presumably a Coal Mine, is shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey Map, but it is not clear whether it was working at that time (c.1858). This may have been the Engine Pit opened in 1775 "at Willington" by Messrs Bells and Brown.
