HER Info (unless otherwise noted)

A scatter of coal workings, in the form of coal pits most with collars of spoil are visible as earthworks, cropmarks and soilmarks on historical air photos. These remains are located in the fields that like between A197 and and the railway viaduct on the north side of the River Wansbeck. The lidar imagery indicates that many, though not all of these features survive as earthworks.
