HER Info

A coal shaft is shown at Silver Hill on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1865. This has been identified as the Good Luck pit of the Old Hartley Colliery owned by the Delaval family; if so then it was sunk 1779 and worked from 1779 to 1783. There many other short-lived collieries in the area also owned by the Delavals. The coal mined was often exported down the east coast of England.
