Woodland is a small village
located in South West
County Durham, North East England. The village lies close to the Cumbrian
and North Yorkshire borders in an area of unspoilt countryside.
The purpose of this site is to give a brief
background to the village, especially its coal mining past. A number of
historical photographs are included in the site, many illustrating the mining
history of the village.
