Beamish Mary was situated further west from The 2nd Pit along the former Wagon Way heading toward Tanfield closed in the 1960s and the site has since been landscaped, though a vague outline remains, This mine was heavily updated by the NCB (along with nearby Handonhold Colliery) and one of the 1st in the North East to feature Skip winding, however somehow it still closed.
