    "Seatonburn Colliery, served by a wagonway (HER ref. 1067), opened c.1844 after several years sinking the shaft, and closed 17th August 1963. The 1st edition Ordnance Survey Map shows a shaft within the colliery; the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey Map shows the expansion of colliery buildings and spoil heaps and the addition of two Smithys. The initial ownership was with the Grand Allies but by 1850 had passed to John Bowes & Partners. By 1899 the owners were the Seaton Burn Coal Company. The mine became part of Hartley Mains collieries in the 1930s...."
