Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - Crook Colliery was one of multiple situated along the Darlington & Consett Railway in the late 19th century. This pit was modest in comparison to the giant Woodifield Colliery to the north and Low Beechburn to the south, with one line of coke ovens and a few sidings. This is likely due to the fact it was operated by a partnership rather than being consumed by a larger operation.

The pit closed around the 1880s, as it is labelled as disused on 1890s maps.
