HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

A Gatherick Colliery is known to have existed in the later 17th century. The most recent colliery was sunk to the Cooper Eye Seam pre-1839. This latest colliery operated till 1865 when operated by the local concern Johnson & Carr. There are a number of such small collieries in the north of the county which would have supplied the immediate local needs for fuel.
