Documentary Evidence


On the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan, this engine is not shown in association with a mine or wagonway, so was possibly a mine pumping engine. It is not marked on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan, so was probably out of use by 1895. This appears to have been the site of Brunton Row Colliery and historic map evidence indicates a wagonway running south to the Fawdon wagonway. Greenwell's map of 1827 shows the wagonway following a more circuitous path, some of which may survive as tracks or field boundaries. The British Geological Survey mark this site as two immediately adjacent shafts.
