  • Co Durham Sheet 12.01 Hobson & Tantobie 1895 - published 2004; intro by Tom Oliphant. ISBN.978-1-84151-718-6

    This very detailed map covers the villages of Tantobie and Hobson, a few miles NE of Consett. Coverage stretches from Tantobie northward to Hobson, and eastward to part of Tanfield. The coke ovens are shown at Hobson, although the colliery is on the Burnopfield map. The Pontop & Jarrow Railway runs through the map and other features include a short stretch of the Linz Colliery Railway, Mountsett Quarries, Mountsett Fell, the routes of old wagonways, Wagonhill Farm, Clough Dene, Tanfield Leith Hall. The portion of Tanfield shown includes Packhorse Inn and Peacock Inn. On the reverse, as well as a short directory of Tantobie, we include information on Durham coalmining from Whelan's Directory 1894.

    The map links up with Sheets 6.13 Burnopfield to the north, and 12.02 East Tanfield to the east.
