The Butterwell Report

Harworth Estates, the owners of Butterwell Disposal Point, intend to put forward the following major rail-associated proposals as part of the ‘Butterwell’ surface mine restoration scheme.

The Butterwell Disposal Point to remain in place as a long term strategic commercial rail-connected facility, the facility to be further enhanced with the introduction of additional land for future rail-associated use. This additional land would be created during the restoration of Butterwell surface mine and would offer a rail-connected facility with a total site area of 20 hectares. It also involves the full reinstatement of Harworth Estates’ privately-owned ‘Ashington to Butterwell’ railway line which runs via New Moor, Potland, and Linton Lane. This line runs through Butterwell Disposal Point.
