Alexandrina Colliery (Letch Pit) Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)


Part of the Rainton Group of Mines but in the boundary of Hetton-Le-Hole (Between Durham and Sunderland) but situated to the west toward the Pittington group of Mines and quite close to the Hazard, Moorsley (North Hetton Group), all still part of The Rainton Group. This Mine was quite short lived and closed around the same time as the Pittington Mines. Opened 1824, closed 1896. The Mine is heavily surrounded by woodland but due to its isolated location, it has an abundance of half demolished buildings, including a disused Air Shaft.
