HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

A number of disused coal pits are shown here in early mapping of the area. It is thought that the many pits may have worked the seam called the Fawcet Seam. It is unknown what depths these pits went to. However, it is likely that the nearby railway would have flooded the local markets with coal from the larger collieries to the north (around Scremerston) and south (around Ashington). These pits may have been used to fuel the nearby lime kiln to the southwest.
