The constuction of Firbeck Colliery began in 1923 by the Firbeck Main Colliery Company Ltd with the sinking of the two shafts, mining began in 1925 on the Barnsley Bed Seam, this seam would end up been the only one worked by Firbeck in it's rather short career.

In 1934 the Firbeck Pit Head Baths where opened, the baths still stand to this day and are recorded in the report below.

In 1940 the pit was taken over by the Doncaster Amalgamated Collieries Ltd and nationalised as part of the National Coal Board in 1947.

The colliery closed in 1968, the reason given was uneconomic production.

During the period of 1970/71 both the up and downcast shafts where filled in and the site abandoned.






the place was easy enough to find and access, right next to it is a public foot path so walking around there was no issues. the place itself was in great shape apart from the second floor missing in places. wish I had a better and stronger touch as some places inside was in complete darkness. defiantly worth the trip.​
