    Denaby Main Colliery closed in 1968 after 101 years of producing coal.

    The colliery site itself is now home to the Dearne Valley Leisure Centre and the only remaining colliery building now remaining is the pit baths.

    The Denaby baths seem to date, going by the architecture, from the late 1930's and have an almost nautical theme, very similar to some of the modernist buildings of the time with the use of portholes - God knows what a 1930's Yorkshire mining village made of such a radical style!

    This site is part-demolished and what remains is well and truly trashed , there's little evidence, other than the tiled walls, to suggest what it used to be - no lockers, no cubicles, no plumbing fittings.

    Very nice, I dont recall seeing this one before...

    There are very few of these left now, the surviving ones need saving, and soon. It would be terrible if many more end up lost. The attitude of the council in Annesley is pissing me off more and more... " there are better examples elswhere"

    The black and red tiled room would have housed the boot cleaning brushes are grease urns, in case you diddnt know.
