Go to 'Tab 5'

2.1  Coal Authority Map showing scores of entrances to Coal Mines in and around Washington.  Major Mines Labelled.

2.2  Press Cutting discovered by Wash. History Soc.  Glebe Miners' Welfare Hall.  When was it built?  What did it cost?

This wonderful underground Diesel Locomotive arrived in Washington in 1977,
having ended its mining career at nearby Herrington Colliery.
What does it look like now?   Go to Last Tab.
