Description (or HER record listing)

Robert Pit Shaft is marked on the British Geological Survey map. Robert Pit Shaft marked on the British Geological Survey and shown on OS third edition of 1919. Closed in 1966. Owned by East Walbottle Coal Company Ltd until 1947 when it was taken over by the National Coal Board. Pit Head Baths dating to early 1960s survive.

NEHL - The pit can be seen on maps dating from the 1910s, having been sunk and opened in the same decade. It was a small site, with one central shaft in the above ground buildings with a small internal tramway system to move slag to the heaps. It was not connected by any railway, and coal was instead moved by road.

The manager of the pit upon its opening was Mr J I March.
