    The Colliery finally closed in 1991 - It had originally closed in 1966, but reopened to take workers from the nearby Barrow pit, which was forced to shut in 1985 due to geological problems.

    Barnsley Main also has an historical link to the Oaks Colliery disaster of 1866, England’s worst ever mining accident when 361 men and boys were killed in a series of gas explosions.

    The pithead buildings post-date the disaster, they were built as part of Barnsley Main, which took over the workings of the Oaks Colliery.

    Really wanted to see inside here for years having visited the site many times - I expected this to be nothing more than a shell so was pleasantly surprised by how much is left. Bumped into fellow explorer Will Knot - Good to meet you sir!
