Description. In the present year (1833) a new colliery has been won here [Monkwearmouth], and from the fine quality of the coal and extent of the seams, coupled with the very advantageous situation of the pit (being upon the banks of the Wear), it will, when vigorously under-way, impart additional stimulus to the industry of the inhabitants, and to the prosperity of these towns.
Pit Terminology - Glossary. Glossary of words that are generally specific to the mining industry: Some have a two or three fold meaning, some have gone out of use, some are local to Derbyshire, Leicestershire, South Yorkshire and to Nottinghamshire, and others are general to the British Coalfields.
