Peal Flat Coal Pits, Swalwell
8 Sept 2021
Whickham Grand Lease group
In the last two decades of the 16th century the Whickham Grand Lease group had pits on Sir George Selby's Peal Flat overlooking Swalwell. Water in the pits must have had to have been raised to the surface by the gin at Ginn Close on Market Lane. Peal Flat is not documented after 1610.
