Default Ferneybeds the sea sale colliery

Ferneybeds Colliery was quite a short-lived affair; 15 years I believe. Quite shallow workings too - 21 metres to the yard seam. A shaft and a drift under the 'mile road'. I think most of the men went to Stobswood Colliery when it closed. Still surprised they shipped coal out of Amble.
