Barmoor Red House, coal pits
26 Jan 2022
HER Info (unless otherwise noted)
At series of coal mining pits have been noted in this area. These are likely Post Medieval in date. There are many small collieries - mostly bell pit, rather than larger sites - typical of the north of the Northumberland. It is unknown exactly when these worked; however, the second edition Ordnance Survey mapping of the area provides a rough date. This suggests that any coal mining here stopped pre-1899.
