Description (or HER record listing)

NEHL - The Caterhouse Pit, east of the main Framwellgate Colliery, can be seen on contemporary maps from the 1890s. It was connected by waggonway to the main complex with a crossing over Front Street. The grounds of the pit are intact and can be discerned easily. It is now a public park/nature reserve type area.
