Description"This is the original site of Barcombe Colliery before it moved to west of Birkshaw in the late C19th. It was served by the Crindledikes Waggonway and tunnel. Very little of the colliery survives today except the base of a winch [] and one or two shafts or levels. http://www.keystothepast.info/durhamcc/K2P.nsf/K2PDetail?readform&PRNMAP=N20538 The hollow in the foreground is probably a sinkhole showing the limestone rock close to the surface. Stanegate Roman Road is on the right." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2012.
