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.
