Tyne and Wear HER(16480): Wallsend, wagonway - Details
Waggonway shown on 1949 aerial photograph as a broad linear soil mark. The feature appeared consistent with a spread and ploughed-out bank of an old wagonway. The feature was identified and confirmed during an archaeological evaluation in 2011. It is believed to have connected the Beanypit shaft (Wallsend Colliery F Pit) which opened in 1797 and perhaps connected to Wallsend C Pit wagonway to the west of Wallsend village.
