Tyne and Wear HER(5114): Scotswood, Drift Mine - Details
Scotswood, Drift Mine
Stone and brick-built entrance to stone-lined tunnel; interpreted as a drift mine, but may have been for a railway incline. Restored by City Council in 1986. Part of the inclined railway from the Scotswood Delaval Drift passes under the former Scotswood, Newburn and Wylam Railway in the form of a tunnel passing through the embankment of the Railway across the road from the Vickers' Works.
