This is the site of Broom Colliery. It was out of use by 1898. Visible earthworks can still be seen in the area. A wagon way appears to have lead south and joined a railway running east to Ferryhill Station. The remains of two shafts can be seen. Broom Cottages to the north of this site may well have been connected to the mine.
