Doddington, Northmoor Pit
13 May 2022
HER Info (unless otherwise noted)
A pair of coal pits is noted in this area. It is unknown when they started work; they are likely of Post Medieval 19th century age. It is thought that this is the site of the Doddington Northmoor Pit. Since the two pits in the area were marked as "Old" in 1866 it is therefore likely that they were disused by this time. Such small coal mines are common in the north of Northumberland where there were a number of small seams to be exploited.
