Ruined buildings of former colliery, Blaydon Burn

  • Description

    "The west end of the Nature Reserve, where the burn meets the road, was formerly the railhead of the valley line [[2817291]]. The ruined buildings shown here lie between the upper and lower sections of the railhead. The most notable is a large section of retaining wall showing numerous phases of build and construction types. The wall includes a number of arched openings and cast-iron pipework, of unknown function, but probably associated with adjacent coal screens to the north-east. There is another photo here [[2191820]]" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2012.
