Demolition work at the Doctor Pit?

Well done Maggie it is the Doctor Pit but I'm moving the goalposts before you see the pic, can you tell me what other Landmark will be prominent?

Maybe the Coffin Chapel, or from another view the Power Station Chimneys, or there again the Tech at Ashington.

Cannot think of any higher ground. Could be a slag heep!

Thinking about the direction of the photo and the colliery rows.

The Cheviots and the Simonside hills would be in view if the picture was taken on high ground.

If it is to the right then I think Maggie will be correct. If it is to the left then it could be Wansbeck District Council's old depot yard.

Someone send a search party out Foxy has gone missing.

We forgive you for not having the photo in full.

Wind ups are ok.

Maybe the landmark is a pub, and Foxy is not missing.

Sorry Maggie

I've just got home from the pub after drowning my sorrows because you and Pete found the answer too easy. I'll be back with something more difficult soon. Can you put a date on this? Think Inspector Threegee will get this one.

I would Say late 66, early 67 as the railway line looks to have been removed first thing to go from collieries due to close, the last few coal movements mostly are done by road.

Now,after we sort that one and put it to bed,can i pose another question afore i forget?!

Its the Doctor Pit around 1967.

Got the same pic and exact date too. Will check it out as soon as i finish the Sun Inn murder story.

BTW, a good quality pic this is, better than mine.

Could i replace mine with this ?

Lets know. cheers
