HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

An unnamed coal shaft is shown on an estate map of 1781, joined by a wagonway (HER ref. 1958) to Hill Pit (HER ref. 3952) and Meadow Pit (HER ref. 3953). Nmaed Queen Pit on ZAN/M17/197/a/24. It is not shown on the first edition Ordnance Survey plan of 1858, so was presumably out of use by that date.

'Sketches of The Coal Mines in Northumberland and Durham' T.H.Hair, published in 1844
