Event description
Travel back in time as you discover the remains of the industrial activity which once brought life to Prudhoe.

About this Event

Discover the site of an 1870s coal mine, with extensive railway and coal working remains. The workings were the creation of the Mickley Coal Company which had strong associations with the creation of the Catholic church in Prudhoe. The site later became part of West Wylam Colliery, though it was abandoned long before the colliery closed in 1961.

Knowledgeable local author and enthusiast Robert Forsythe will take you on a journey back in time, bringing to life the story of this fascinating site which has now been reclaimed by nature. Robert will examine the findings of the archaeology investigation, as it reaches the end of the first week. Click here to find out how to get involved in the archaeology dig. (link to be added later).

This walk is steep and rough in places, please wear stout footwear and suitable outdoor clothing.
