shepherd's notes

Shilbottle (ancient name Shilbote) was built on the back of coal mining. Coal mining began in the district around 1728 and by the end of the 18th century six shafts were operating around Blue Lodge Farm (a.k.a. Colliery Farm). The National Coal Board took over the mines after the Second World War and production continued until a decline in the 1970s. The pit closed in 1981 and the work-force transferred to nearby Whittle, Northumberland.
