J.Sharp Haulage of North Shields were responsible for a lot of the pit heaps in the Northumberland coalfield. We extracted the burnt shale and a lot of ash for use as an aggregate on the region's roads,

Any photos of the process? (I'm ever hopeful )

I remember the smoking Hauxley Colliery pit heaps, seemed to be burning by themselves for years.
