Former coal pit south of Heddon Hall
Former coal pit south of Heddon Hall
Characteristic of the area, disused coal pits were planted with trees when they were taken out of use and today make distinctive circular copses of trees among the fields. The pit here is named as 'Engine Bank Pit' on the First Edition OS Map published in 1864. The marshy ground in the foreground possibly drains another pit (Jenny Pit) further up the hillside to the north.
