A grassy field, part of Rising Sun Country Park and as far as I am aware, nothing to suggest there was ever a colliery here. Plenty of information boards outlining the history of mining in this area. Extensive views from the top of the hill including Penshaw Monument - 15 km to the south. Keep a look out for the stag in the park, grazing with the horses, no one seems to know where it came from.
