A campaign to transform the crumbling Clipstone headstocks into a community hub with adventure sport facilities is gathering pace, with more than 3,000 people having signed a petition.

The imposing towers have fallen into a derelict state since the pit closed in 2003, with residents and local councillors repeatedly calling for their demolition and the land be utilised.

A planning application to demolish the 200ft-high structures has not yet been determined, but Denise hopes with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, it could be converted into a destination facility complete with a zip wire ride an indoor skydiving tunnel .
