Tyne and Wear HER(5937): Heworth Way - Details
The old colliery at High Heworth probably led to Felling Staith down a branch of the Felling Way. Alternatively it may have led to a probable old coal staith at the west end of Heworth Shore, later a grindstone quay. The new colliery of 1759 had a waggonway to large staiths downstream and is shown on a plan of 1764. These in turn gave way for a new outlet for the Sheriff Hill Colliery.
