Stiddle Hill Colliery
Stiddle Hill Colliery
Scant remains of this mid 19thC colliery. They worked a 30" seam of coal here until the pit was exhausted and closed in 1931. Prior to the advent of lorries, the coal was taken down a short waggonway to meet up with the North British Line from Morpeth.
There was only a single accident reported at this mine, but unfortunately it resulted in the death of Mr George Todd, the Overman, who was crushed by a waggon on the 2 March 1876.
