Report Bedlington Colliery in History Hollow Posted January 4 5 hours ago, Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) said: @Sloopy .Dog - I have added the names of collieries I can remember that were in the area - don't think I've missed one but @HIGH PIT WILMA will keep me right. There was a railway link between the tow Bedlington pits and they both dumped the waste onto the same pit heap. The site of the 'A' pit main shaft can be located on the Bower grange estate by the vent that was installed. I don't know exactly where it is but @John Fox (foxy) might be able to tell you. Behind Harewood Drive.
