Description (or HER record listing)
NEHL - Broomhill was a fairly extensive colliery complex at the village of Broomhill, south west of Amble. It was connected to the Amble Branch, which then went on to connect to the East Coast Main Line. The main pit had a gas works, brick works and a large number of sidings emanating from the section of double track just past Broomhill Station.
Much of the site today has been reclaimed for agricultural use.
