Ford Colliery, Ford - Northumberland (UA)

Monument including above and below ground remains of Ford Colliery. The colliery worked from at least the middle of the C17 through to 1919. The site includes the engine house chimney which was repaired in 2008-9. A condition survey has been prepared for the engine house and pit head. A programme of archaeological recording and borehole investigations has informed the preparation of a full repair scheme, funded by Historic England. The repair scheme now needs to be implemented to enable public access to these structures.
