HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

Coal workings are documented on Lysdon Moor and named as the New Hartley Gloria Shaft by the Coal Authority and The Durham Mining Museum website. Structures associated with these workings are visible on air photos taken in 1947 as are large conical spoil heaps. These workings were active in the late 1940s but closed in 1951. The structures have now been demolished and the spoil heaps have been levelled.
