sorry... i know its been done before but this is my take on it.

This is the youngest colliery in the neighbourhood, having commenced operations for the Ashington Coal Co. Ltd. in 1934. The shafts, which are situated comparatively near to the coast, are two in number, and both were sunk to the High Main seam level, which is 486 ft. from the surface. The downcast (No. 1) is 18 ft. in diameter and is used for coal-raising on two shifts per day, and the upcast, which has a diameter of 15 ft., is used for ventilation and emergency manriding only.
The seams being worked are the High Main, the Diamond, the Main, and the Yard. Each of these seams shows practically the same nature of roof and floor as throughout the two neighbouring collieries and the distance between the seams is also comparable. They are, of course, found at slightly greater depths at Lynemouth, the Yard seam, for example, being 660 ft. below the surface near to the shafts, as compared with some 300 ft. at Ellington.

On with the pics...
