HER Info

This colliery is specifically noted in a gazetteer of the archaeological and historical sites of the area. Such sites used to be common in the north of England - these are now of archaeological interest, in some cases little remaining of entire sites on the surface.

'Sketches of The Coal Mines in Northumberland and Durham' T.H.Hair, published in 1844
