Tyne and Wear HER(15432): Walker, Waggonway from Henry Pit to Gosforth Pit - Details
Walker, Waggonway from Henry Pit to Gosforth Pit
This waggonway ran south between Walker Colliery’s Henry Pit and Gosforth Pit, providing access for Henry Pit’s coal to staiths at Wincomblee via HER 4210 and eventually via route 110 to the staiths at Wallsend. Greenwood’s map of 1828 shows the line, but it is not shown on Bell 1847. The pits are shown on the first edition Ordnance Survey but the line is not.
