    Not posted a report for a long, long time. Purely down to not getting out, but this is basically in my back yard so no excuse.

    Well, one excuse - the dog was with me, so couldn't venture too far. Heras etc.

    So it's a pretty short one, until I get there on my own and have a proper wander.

    Not a patch on @mattdonut report, but it does show it in the daytime.

    Main Colliery area

    This wasn't actually part of the Colliery but part of the main railway that was decommed back in the 50s. It was transported here when the Colliery closed for preservation.

    No idea why there's a barge there!

    I'll hopefully get a better report up when I've had more of a wander, will see what happens but thought I'd show my face and contribute a bit.

    I would think about it fairly soon, there are plans going through approval currently to open it all up Into a recreation area. Those plans will grant some access, but seal others off quite well.

    Gimme a shout if you do

    No, unfortunately not. Looks pretty sad now from what you put up the other day

    Thinking about the old coop building on mantle lane at some point as well.
