Billing Hills Mine, Eastgate, Weardale, North Pennines, Co. Durham, England, UK

Old mine on the Slitt Vein, south of the River Wear. If the Grid ref. quoted in Dunham is correct, the mine has now been obliterated by the Blue Circle cement works quarry.
"Billing Hills is a very imprecise location. It is an area to the east and south of what was the crushing plant at the Blue Circle cement works. It is crossed by the Slitt Vein which was worked opencast and also from levels driven from the fell side below. In addition there are several small un-named veins in the area, as well as the famous green fluorite area in the main quarry."
