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.
Finally got around to having a proper look around this place after visiting briefly in December. The ground level stuff is past its best, metal fairies have had a field day, but it's still definitely worth a good mooch. Then to top if off you've got the head stocks, something pretty damn special. Most of the shots are from t'other day but there's a couple of externals from back in December.
