Tyne and Wear HER(5449): Weetslade Colliery, Pit Head Baths

  • Description

    "Rare surviving example of a modern component of colleries in the north-east region. Although some examples are known as early as 1911, such facilities were routinely provided only after the establishment in 1926 of a fund for the purpose of building pit-head baths.....The Weetslade baths are one of only three examples known to survive locally. These may be the only such structures dating from the period 1930-60 to survive in Tyne and Wear and Northumberland....."
