Ledston 'Luck' Colliery Castleford, to be honest you cant really call it a colliery there's no head stocks any more most of the buildings are gone and what is let have been turned into small businesses all except the two winding houses and as i was passing doing a near by chemical works it would be rude to not have a quick look. what is left was quite nice actually not a great deal but still worth shooting and the winding houses them selfs are quite stunning on the exterior with beautiful brick work and detailing. The pit itself was originally sunk in the 1870's and later formed the superpit that interlinked other workings around selby, the winding houses were built in 1911 and were among the first to use Electric winders, other collieries were still using steam, the wind houses are on the English Heritage list of scheduled ancient monuments, the pit finally closed in 1986.
