Hi All.

Visited with Retroboy, Spiderstuart & One none 28DL member.
Have been to the colliery a couple of times, i first went in the dark and went to the top but avoided the ladder onto the crane. On my second visit i went up the ladder and onto the very top!

Abit of a history lesson and pics;

Clipstone Colliery is 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 headstocks of the colliery are regarded as the tallest in Europe and the third tallest in the world. They are Grade 2 Listed structures and can be seen all over the district. They are expensive to keep in good repair and there have been a number of appeals, as yet to no avail, to demolish them. But however the clipstone headstocks are nearly demolished now and no one knows what will happen in the future.

'The Pit Stop' Stop called the Police my friend said as they were in the shop as they thought someone was going to commit suicide - defiantly not my intentions. Anyhow they were cool with us when i actually came down.
