Tyne and Wear HER(1962): Throckley, Queen Pit - Details
Throckley, Queen Pit
Coal Mining Site
An unnamed coal shaft is shown on an estate map of 1781, joined by a wagonway (HER ref. 1958) to Hill Pit (HER ref. 3952) and Meadow Pit (HER ref. 3953). Nmaed Queen Pit on ZAN/M17/197/a/24. It is not shown on the first edition Ordnance Survey plan of 1858, so was presumably out of use by that date.
