    After High Royds, the res of the day was filled with industrial sites around Castleford and Barnsley...

    This little gem, was in all likelihood mostly gone but was on the way to the next site so we dropped in...

    History>

    Ledston Luck pit was sunk in the 1870's and later formed part of the “superpit” of interlinked workings around Selby. Ledston luck miners where the last to return to work after the miners strike, a year to the day after the National Coal Board (NCB) announced plans to shed 20,000 more jobs in the next financial year. This was due to the Mine manager deciding to stamp his authority on his workers, when they arrived for work after the last day of the stike they found he had chained the gates shut saying he'd decide when they could return to work, not them. Their pit would be closed less than two years later. The two winding Houses were built in 1911 and where among the first to use electric winders, at a time most other mines were still using steam. The Winding Houses are on the English Heritage list of scheduled ancient monuments.

    > Although there is not much left of the site, we got a bit lucky and a unit opposite was also abandoned...

    next door to the site was an abandoned warehouse unit / Deeeerrrrrp...on our way across the yard we saw a random guy presumably working at the site, with some more stealth and crawling under the lorry graveyard, we made our way inside...
