The History:


Chatterley Whitfield Colliery is a disused coal mine on the outskirts of Chell, Staffordshire in Stoke on Trent, England. It was the largest mine working the North Staffordshire Coalfieldand was the first colliery in the UK to produce one million tons of saleable coal in a year.
The colliery and pithead baths complex are on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Registerdue to being in very bad condition and not in use. In September 2019, it was named on the Victorian Society's list of the top ten most endangered buildings in England and Wales.

The explore:

I was kindly shown around by a friend who has visited the site before, we managed to make it around a few of the buildings and what beautiful place this is the 19th century buildings make it easy to see how this would have looked in its hay-day.
