This Coal Depot on the Hetton Company Railway (HER ref. 2850) was constructed around the same time as the railway, and expanded in size through the 19th century. However, on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey map of 1895 it is marked as "Old Forge". The Hetton Railway passes under the coal depot through a tunnel.
