Hebburn Pit and the Davy Lamp
Posted by Mac Cummings on June 28, 2019, 2:11 pm
I'm just reading "A passage to India" by Allan Mallinson the latest in the series of 13 so far.
Hebburn was mentioned in one of the earlier books but in this one Hebburn Pit is referred to as the place where Davy devised his lamp.
Nice to see an author using real events in a fictional setting.
I can highly recommend Mr Mallinson's work.
Recommended Local History websites.
