Description (or HER record listing)

This is one of the larger collieries of inland North Northumberland. It was specifically named "Doddington Colliery" on the first edition ordnance Survey mapping of the area. This implies some difference to the vast majority of coal working sites in the area. In the 1860s and 1870s this was owned successively by S Salisbury and Brown & Co. However, by the second edition of the Ordnance Survey in 1899 the site appears disused. Whilst the colliery may have been a big Post Medieval example in the North of the county it would probably have been dwarfed by the many other collieries in the south of the county which were better served by transport, such as rail, links.
