The material that forms the archive of Woodhorn Colliery includes the buildings, tools, photographs and written
records of the former coalmine. As well as the old colliery buildings themselves, lots of equipment and everyday
items used by miners are on display at Woodhorn Colliery Museum. Many of the documents from the mine are held at
the Northumberland Record Office.
Using a selection of this material we have illustrated the lives of the miners and showed how the colliery operated.
You can link from the reconstructions to some of these photographs. Alternatively, you can follow the links to the
archive table of contents.
