Cowpen & North Seaton Coal Co. (1860s), Cowpen Coal Co. Ltd. (1890s - 1947), National Coal Board (1947 -)
This colliery is noted in the early mapping of the area. It shows already many of the features of such an area; a specific engine house is named, and four pit terraces can be seen. In these pit terraces there appears no provision for gardens, though these (with chapels, shops and schools) were often provided in the accommodation for the mine workers and their families.
