    I have been to this place a few times now, and the second time we went, we climbed the headstocks. My legs were pretty much play dough by the time I reached the top but it was definitely worth it. It's a good explore. :) The photographs are spaced out between the few times that I went.

    Brief History

    Clipstone Colliery was a coal mine situated near the village of the same name on the edge of an area of Nottinghamshire known as “The Dukeriesâ€￾ because of the number of stately homes in the area. The colliery was owned by the Bolsover Colliery Company and passed to the National Coal Board in 1947.

    The colliery was sunk to exploit the Barnsley seam or “Tophardâ€￾, as it known locally. In the 1950s 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.
