    Had a trip out on Saturday afternoon prior to the 28dl Hull pissup. In the car was Squirrell911 with Raddog, Turkey and Dweeb.
    Wistow and Stillingfleet were both part of the Selby coal mine system and they both closed in 2004.
    Both have had some demo work, inparticularly Wistow, which at one time had an impressive modern looking headstock building on site.
    Stillingfleet still has an active area near the rear of the site, apparently extracting methane from the mine system.
    Both sites were similar and it has to be said even though they were both interesting, neither were that photogenic (maybe the other guys got some better shots).
    Some of the more interesting looking areas were off limits due to PIR issues (as Squirrell had found out on an earlier visit).
    I thought I'd at least share some of the results from what was at least an entertaining afternoon's exploring.

    Inside the main building (access was fun)

    Rail Tracks down the empty yard and the site Crane in the distance

    It does what is says...

    It looked good through the round window, but the PIR's kept us out

    Some Caged Ladder action

    Interesting storage

    Was big brother watching? We don't think so

    A Hydraulic Oil Drum, demo evidence in the background

    Inside the Warehouse (interesting ceiling decor)

    The Emergency Telephone

    Some quality 80's Grumble

    The Crane hook

    One room was full of different site notices

    The remote Contol unit the the Winch

    Old Fire Bucket
