Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - The Long Dyke Pit at Bilton Banks was one of Shilbottle Colliery's longest surviving pits. It was connected with a single track tramway to a gas works on the outskirts of Alnwick, presumably for onward travel. Though the pit terraces don't survive, the manager's house remains.
