ANNFIELD PLAIN 1895 - DURHAM SHEET 12.09

These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.

This very detailed map covers the mining village (or small town) of Annfield Plain, just west of Stanley. Coverage stretches from Catchgate eastward to Oxhill and also includes West Kyo and East Kyo. Several railways cross the map: the NER Annfield Plain Branch and NER Pontop & South Shields Branch, which meet at Annfield Plain Junction (the former is now part of the C2C cycleway) and Morrison Pit Wagonway (now the route of the main road). Collieries on the map include South Moor Colliery (Charley Pit); South Tanfield Colliery, with coke ovens; South Derwent Colliery, at Annfield Plain, and this includes the Willie Pit, Pontop coke ovens, Bankfoot coke ovens, engine shed. Also shown are Oxhill Farm, old wagonway, Bessy Bell Hill, Quakinghouse Cottages, South Moor Colliery (Pea Pit), Kyo Laws, Lizzie Square, South Derwent Colliery (Carrmyers Shaft). On the reverse we include a directory of Collierley parish which included Catchgate and Annfield Plain.

The map links up with Sheets 12.10 South Moor to the east.
