    Leaving Pyestock and West park behind and after too long on the M25 we headed back to sheffield...some sleep then up at 2:30am, leaving the bugmobile at meadowhall, we met up with Host, oldskool and hidden shadow and headed to Clipstone colliery......Climb the headstocks for sunrise, explore the rest afterwards.

    I managed to find a couple of old images of the site

    I'd never climbed a headstock before and was looking forward to something new, tiredness took over and i woke up to hear someone say "there they are". My first glimpse of clipstone headstocks....

    So after we had enjoyed the sunrise, we headed down and onto the main buildings...
