View Larger Map New Hartley Northumberland Village, NZ3076 55° 4.9' N 1° 31.3' W map NEW HARTLEYas it is now called is a Mining Village that grew up around the HARTLEY Colliery Hester Pit which was opened around 1845, with three main streets Cross Row, Long Row and Double Row, with a Methodist Chapel serving the villagers Spiritual needs, also the church of St. Michael and All Angels New Hartley, erected in 1900 by C W Jackson M.A. Vicar.
The village is historically linked to nearby HARTLEY village, which was originally an Anglo-Saxon settlement. Records show that coal mining began in 1291. A number of pits were created and exhausted at HARTLEY, before a new pit called Hester was sunk at a site in between Seaton Sluice and Seaton Delaval. Soon after, families settled around the new mine, and the village of NEW HARTLEY was created. Houses were built to the North and West of the pit, in a rough L shape, which included a Methodist chapel and an Inn, the "Hartley Hastings Arms" and New Hartley Workmens Club. The New Hartley Pit Disaster occurred in the village in 1862, killing 204 men and boys. This led to a change in the law and a "best practice" of building two shafts to a pit throughout Britain and many countries across the world.
