Our colliery villages: Netherton

  • Description

    "...In the year 1818 sinking operations first commenced at Netherton, and though it is on record that a year later coals were shipped from it at Blyth, it seems highly probable that the coal spoken of was not shipped at Blyth itself, but at a part of the river near the Ironworks at Bedlington, to which point keels used to come, taking in their cargoes from the carts which brought them down from Netherton...."
