Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - A drift mine stood on the lane between Bedlington Bridge and Bebside North Farm on the River Blyth. The drift is illustrated on Ordnance Survey maps from the 1850s but disappears by the 1890s. The mine is confirmed by the Coal Authority alongside at least 3 on the other side of the bank. It is not known if this is part of a wider colliery elsewhere in the area, or if it's a very localised working for the community.
