    Thoresby Colliery was a coal mine in north Nottinghamshire. The mine opened in 1925, and closed in 2015, then Nottinghamshire's last coal mine.

    the first of two sites, access is really easy but two vans with dogs watch over the site, so we couldnt make it over to the headstocks
    i do like collieries tho, Visited with Mr sam and Goldie

    Looking forward to doing a colliery soon as it won't be long before they will be a relic of British industrial history.

    Did you see the Securitard or were you just being cautious about not going to the headstocks?

    They wouldn't be loose. Just to clarify. They have to be on a lead at all times.

    Control of guard dogs.
    (1)A person shall not use or permit the use of a guard dog at any premises unless a person (“the handler”) who is capable of controlling the dog is present on the premises and the dog is under the control of the handler at all times while it is being so used except while it is secured so that it is not at liberty to go freely about the premises.

    (2)The handler of a guard dog shall keep the dog under his control at all times while it is being used as a guard dog at any premises except—

    (a)while another handler has control over the dog; or

    (b)while the dog is secured so that it is not at liberty to go freely about the premises.

    (3)A person shall not use or permit the use of a guard dog at any premises unless a notice containing a warning that a guard dog is present is clearly exhibited at each entrance to the premises.
