Home TYNESIDE COLLIERIES 1844 MAPS

These drawings were taken from 'Sketches of The Coal Mines in Northumberland and Durham' by T.H.Hair published in 1844. The first pictures only include those on both sides of the Tyne.
* Where there were disasters with significant loss of life I have tried to add a link to pages elsewhere.
