Tyne and Wear HER(15353): Walbottle Moor Waggonway - Details
Walbottle Moor Waggonway
A short waggonway running north from Cut End to an unnamed coal pit. Warn shows it as Walbottle Moor Pit but this is not certainly so. Gibsonâ€™s 1787 plan of the routes which names Walbottle Moor suggests a different location for the pit.
