East Hedleyhope battery C (East Hedleyhope)

  • Description

    Three separate rows of coke ovens within an area in part of mid-19th century industrial sites running east from Hedleyhope Colliery east along the Deerness. The banks of coke ovens are on specially constructed terraces over a probable earlier water meadow.
