1858 the Bedlington Coal Co bought Barrington Colliery from Michael Longridge's sons, James and Henry, who left the Northeast to devote their time to their assurance company in Manchester.

1865 The Bedlington Coal Co purchased the iron works and traded as Bedlington Iron Co. The intention was to manufacture iron mouldings for their own use and for outside sales. But little was made of it and the iron works were finally abandoned in 1867.
