Description (or HER record listing)

Two coal pits are shown in the early mapping of this area. There were many small bell pit workings across the upland parts of Northumberland. These would have worked parts of the Scremerston Coal Series of thin, and numerous, coal layers called 'seams'. It is likely that this would have served the kiln or kilns employed at the nearby Site of Brieredge Tile Works.
