Site of the disused Hope Pit
The scrub woodland conceals foundations of buildings (mine engine houses and Rift Cottages), a spoil heap, and (on the right) the start of a waggonway which led due south towards North Wylam Railway Station. Hope Pit was known locally as 'Chuckee Pit' and was worked periodically during the C18th and C19th, although finally closed in 1893-94.
