Blaydon Burn, upper railhead
Lifting and Winding Structure
Clay was used for the manufacture of bricks at Cowen's two brickworks (HER ref. 1646 and 3434). No coal or clay is now extracted from the valley, but remnants exist of examples of loading staithes and pillars which supported aerial ropeways.
