Tyne and Wear HER(8411): Blaydon Burn, slag heaps - Details
Blaydon Burn, slag heaps
Mining Industry Site
There are various slag and spoil heaps running along the south side of the Burn. Slag and waste was probably transported from the coal screens below via the incline (HER 8410). Spoil may also have come from the coal drift (HER 1644) and quarry waste from the nearby quarry (HER 1642).
