Usworth


Usworth is a district of Washington in Tyne & Wear, within the City of Sunderland. Before the development of the 'New Town' of Washington, Usworth had been a separate village, which expanded in association with coal mining at Usworth Colliery, which opened in 1875 and operated up to 1974. Usworth Hall, located to the east of Usworth, dates from the late 18th century.
