Old Hartley Colliery, Seaton Valley
Old Hartley, Seaton Valley

This is the site of the June Pit owned and operated by the Delaval Family. The family owned and operated many coal-mining sites in the Seaton Delaval-Seaton Sluice area. This was linked to a nearby wagonway which issued from the Chatham Pit to the harbour at Seaton Sluice. By the 1860s the site was unrecognised as a coal-mining site. It is unknown when this site was working - though it was sunk from 1787 to 1788.
