Tyne and Wear HER(4099): Benwell, Clay Pits - Details
Benwell, Clay Pits
Clay Extraction Site
Clay pits are shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, along with a gingang, suggesting the presence of underground workings. These are not shown on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan, however, so were probably out of use by 1895.
