OS Pathf. also shows West Saline Cottage. OS Explorer 366 (2001) shows a complicated re-arrangement of names in this area in relation to OS Pathf. 383 (1981). This has been caused by massive opencast coal-mining operations, in the wake of which two new farms have been constructed, called Thornyhill Farm and West Saline Farm.
