Tyne and Wear HER(8410): Blaydon Burn, incline - Details
Blaydon Burn, incline
Shown on OS third and fourth edition maps (1914 and 1940) but not labelled. Presumably associated with Blaydon Burn Colliery and dating from the Priestman acquisition c.1900. Built of sandstone rubble and Cowen's firebricks, the structure ran from the coal screens up to slag heaps. Two sections of the incline survive, cut by a later track. Where the incline has been cut, the ends have been faced in concrete blockwork with a top layer of yellow header bricks.
