HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Meadow Pit is shown on several 18th century estate maps of Throckley contained in the collection of Northumberland Record Office. An undated (but pre-1865) plan of ‘The Throckley Estate and workings in the Engine Seam belonging to Greenwich Hospital’ shows the extent of the underground workings of Throckley Colliery. It shows that the colliery was working the Engine seam (better known as the Low Main Seam) by pillar and stool workings. The site has been levelled.
