Thoresby Colliery was a coal mine in north Nottinghamshire. The mine opened in 1925, and closed in 2015, then Nottinghamshire's last coal mine.

the first of two sites, access is really easy but two vans with dogs watch over the site, so we couldnt make it over to the headstocks
i do like collieries tho, Visited with Mr sam and Goldie

Looking forward to doing a colliery soon as it won't be long before they will be a relic of British industrial history.

Did you see the Securitard or were you just being cautious about not going to the headstocks?

the dog was loose and none of us fancied being chomped on, headstocks have had the lower windows barred too
They wouldn't be loose. Just to clarify. They have to be on a lead at all times.
