Blagill Drift Coal Mine (United Kingdom)


Located at Blagill nr Alston. This mine was worked for many years without particular success. By the 1990's it was owned by the Towsbank Coal Co who worked the Little Limestone Seam via a single tracked drift, haulage was by a diesel winder engine on the incline. The mine closed in July 1993 until sold and re-opened by the Blagill Colliery Co in November 1993. By June 1996 the mine was closed and the adit blocked with heavy wooden doors, however stockpiled coal was still being sold off.
