Finding myself in the area I thought I would drop by in the interest of efficiency, despite being stripped pretty bare it's still worth a stroll having some interesting stuff.

Turned up wanting to climb the headstock but after seeing a worker parked in front of it I thought in the interest of not taking the piss I disappeared inside the building instead. Saw the power house and building containing the winding engine.

History

Courtesy of wikipedia. The colliery opened in 1916. The pit was stopped in 2001, and restarted 2007; the mine passed through a number of different owners in the early part of the 21st century, with subsequent operators entering receivership. During the same period the site was proposed as the location for high-technology coal burning power stations schemes which did not proceed.
