    okay okay need to get on the ladder so here it is, be nice now kids although pointers do help!

    had a mooch over to clipstone on sunday on the way home, took a few walks round and some fiddly finger work to get in but we did

    as for the history hears the obligatory Wikipedia cut because lets face it, i aint got a clue!

    The colliery was sunk to exploit the Barnsley seam or “Tophardâ€￾, as it known locally. In the 1950’s the shafts were deepened to over 1000 yards (920 m) to exploit other seams.
    The colliery was closed by British Coal, as the National Coal Board had become, in 1993 and reopened by RJB Mining (now UK Coal) in April 1994, the licence to dig for coal being limited to the Yard seam which is located at a depth of 957 yards (870 m). The colliery was finally closed in April 2003.
