Tyne and Wear HER(4906): Elswick, Inclined Plane - Details
Elswick, Inclined Plane
This inclined plane linked a nearby colliery (HER ref. 4118) to the river. It first appears on a map of c.1830, although it is likely to be earlier than this since the colliery opened in c.1805. It was closed and removed between 1849 and 1859.
