Kelloe Beck

  • Description

    "Kelloe Beck at this point is a very small watercourse flowing past the site of the former East Hetton (Kelloe) Colliery. The entire area has undergone substantial change since the closure of the colliery in 1983. Downstream of this photograph (behind the photographer) the stream was dammed with a large earthwork adjacent to the colliery main entrance, and the valley was filled with the slurry from the coal washing plant. The resultant reservoir of solidified coal washings had to be mechanically dug out to return the valley to its natural state." Photo by David Robinson, 2019.
