Murton Colliery


"By the late 18th century the High Main Seam in the eastern part of the colliery around Murton had been worked out and the colliery and the waggonway to the Murton area closed. In the 1800s, as technology allowed, the old Murton pits were reopened to exploit deeper coal seams and to extract associated ironstone deposits. A map of 1811 (in Turnbull 2012, route 10B) shows the D and E pits at New York to the south of Murton." (Sitelines)

Not to be confused with Murton Colliery in County Durham.
