Rising groundwater levels have previously been associated with incidences of fault reactivation in the Durham Coalfield. In the area of study, rather than abruptly turn off all pumps in the abandoned coalfield, the Coal Authority have continued to pump minewater from a number of sites as part of a strategy to control the rise of water levels. The questions, what is the total amount of available coal in the coalfields of Great Britain and Ireland, and how long it may be expected to last, have frequently been discussed since the early part of the 19th century, and particular attention was directed to them after the publication of Stanley Jevons's book on The Coal Question in

The present day regional bed dips within the Coalfield are on average 3–4° E, but locally high dips are associated with normal fault-related folding (i.e. drag) or with later Variscan inversion folds (Goossens and Smith,Gibson et al., ). Coalfield faulting is predominantly extensional and of late-Westphalian to pre-Permian in age.

The coal fields in central and northern England were uplifted when the Pennines formed and, except for small outliers left by major faults (e.g. the Ingleton and Sleightholme coalfields), those areas have eroded to reveal the core of older rocks.

Faults are an important element in the structure of the coalfield and many caused major problems in the extraction of the coal.

The dip or cross-faults are the most obvious, predominantly north-north-west-trending in the western and central parts of the coalfield and gradually deflecting to more north-westerly trending in the eastern parts.
