HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

The 1st edition OS mapping shows boilers and a reservoir within the site. Willington Colliery was opened in 1806 by Messrs Bell & Co. The colliery contributed to the running costs of the Friar's Goose Engine in Gateshead which pumped water out of the workings on either side of the Tyne (see HER 1012).
