HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

The Northumberland County History suggests the priors of Tynemouth worked or let out coal pits in the Chirton area. There is, however, not another published reference until 1633 when the Crown granted to William Scriven and William Eden the coal mines of East and Middle Chirton.

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