View along Four Lane Ends, Hetton-le-Hole, c1958 (TWAM ref. 220).
These images are part of a small series of photographs produced and accumulated by Hetton Urban District Council. The Council was established in 1895 under the Local Government Act 1894. The district included Hetton-le-Hole, Hetton Downs, Easington Lane, East Rainton and Moorsley. It was abolished in 1974 when the area became part of Sunderland Metropolitan Borough (later City) Council.

Check out that rotating disk signal. Forgot to say It's the line to Elmore Colliery. The railway went out of use with the opening of Hawthorn Shaft where Elmore coal was then drawn.
