I climbed regularly onto the 1st level and a pathway took you towards Bedes Well and overlooked it. Myself & friends would occasionally explore the larger flat area but we were warned not to go near the crusher or the crossing into the streets near Wansbeck Rd, and we never got onto the highest, this area was at the Monkton Village end.
I attended Bede Burn Junior Sch and everyday I went to school via the path at the side of the Slag Heap into the Village.
After my Dad (Joe Green) retired he would regularly take my sister Elaine's boys onto the Slag Heap and they would have a great time they always came back with 'treasure' .
