Embleton Terrace, Northumberland


Embleton Terrace is a hamlet in Northumberland, located about 10 miles north-west of Morpeth and 3 miles south-east of Rothbury. It is likely the terrace was originally built to house people employed in nearby quarries and coal mining - in particular, nearby Lee Colliery, which by 1924 employed 83 people, but was abandoned in 1925.[1] The smaller Hesleyhurst Drift Mine operated up to the early 1970s. There are a series of older small-scale coal workings to the south-west of Embleton Terrace[2] and an old limekiln. Embleton Terrace forms part of Brinkburn and Hesleyhurst Civil Parish.
