Cornsay Colliery

Cornsay Colliery consists mainly of a street of houses, the main village having long since disappeared from the landscape. With the colliery long gone, rows of colliery houses have been demolished and the area on which they stood is green once more.

The village is home to a play area and the Royal Oak pub and has an active residents' association, TRACC.
