    Maltby Colliery, one of the last deep mines in England, was closed as owners Hargreaves Services said it was no longer viable.
    The pit produced coal for more than 100 years. When Hargreaves Services bought the colliery from UK Coal in 2007, mining was expected to continue until 2015.
    In May 2012 the company said "unusual geological conditions" had emerged, with excess levels of water, gas and oil.
    this was by far one of the best sites weve seen this year , first time we turned up on the dibble caught us before we had even got out the car ! classic line was " youre a long way from the motorway" visited with Mr sam and Goldie

    The powerhouse was still there when we did it. (Although i think @The Amateur Wanderer said it was stripped now?) Also the workshop i think.. Everything else was levelled.
