HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Depicted on the 1815 Vane Tempest estate map and on Bell's Coalfield map (1843). It was connected by a waggonway branch line, partly shared with Mill Pit running NW to link with the Tempest/Londonderry line. Probably redundant by 1862.

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