    Barnsley Main Pit - July 2014

    Another one from a earlier this year... So much to catch up on!

    Pretty nice little pit complete with winding wheel, been a West Yorkshire born and bred lad myself I couldn't the opportunity to have a good look around here when the opportunity presented itself! Some nice features in here, but for me it wouldn't be mission accomplished until I was stood on top of that tower between the winders!! :)

    Anyway a little history courtesy of the BBC and then on with pictures!!

    Now On with the pics, the Black and white pictures where shot on my Olympus OM-2 with Ilford HP4 400ASA Film, anyone who's interested!

    Don"t mention backlog mate :)

    Nice ones from a nice place :thumb

    I called round the other week as i was passing, and was shocked to find out it had been sealed up :eek: Actually welded plates up on the access point...... saying that the usual suspects had already been down with the big hammers :wanker

    And i should add, the best view of Barnsley from the Headstock :)

    Remember Oaks colliery very well as a kid We were always told it was haunted due to the amount of people who had died in it.

    Cheers guys!

    I have to say I'm surprised they bothered to re seal the place tbh, especially with it been Barnsley and all that :/ Not surprised the pikeys have already made an attempt at getting back in though!

    And yeah I wouldn't fancy spending the night there, might just be me, but the place did have a slightly weird feel to it...
