The pit closed in April 2003. Since 1993 it had been owned by RJB Mining (now UK Coal). The present headstocks, Grade Two listed structures, were at the time of completion in 1953 the tallest in Europe.They can be seen from miles around. Despite this, there has been a number of attempts by owners Welbeck Estates to demolish them due to the expense of the upkeep.During 2014, an epetition was submitted to UK government, to raise public support and awareness, which is scheduled to run until March 2015. for more information please visit http://www.clipstoneheadstocks.co.uk/

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole - Petition to sign https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/keep-cumbrian-coal-in-the-hole-its-too-near-sellafield The first deep coal mine in the UK for 30 years ? A new company West Cumbria Mining are being financed by China to the tune of £millions. On January 24th 2018 in Kendal, Cumbria County Council will be making a decision on the first deep coal mine in the UK in 30 years Please write and object – the more objections from the public and from groups there are the better chance we have of stopping new mining activity in close proximity to Sellafield The more letters of objection to Cumbria County Council the better ! Email: [email protected]] For the Attention of: Mrs Rachel Brophy – Case Officer Cumbria County Council Dear Mrs Brophy PLANNING APPLICATION: 4/17/9007 West Cumbria Mining I am writing to strongly oppose the plan to open a new coking (metallurgical) coal mine off St Bees in West Cumbria. Keep Fossil Fuel in the Ground - Cumbria County Council is signed up to climate agreements, which this plan would make a nonsense of. Close to Sellafield - Coal extraction is known to be a cause of man made earthquakes, this site is very close to Sellafield, much closer than any previous coal mining and these coal deposits are dangerously methane rich. Destruction of Wildlife Habitat -The RSPB, Natural England and others have pointed out that this plan would have the potential to impact dangerously on the fragile St Bees habitats and the wider Irish Sea. Yours sincerely ……………………………. For more information please see : https://keepcumbriancoalinthehole.wordpress.com/

IMPORTANT: SO the audio for the scene outside my great-grandad's house has messed up and isn't playable on THE YOUTUBE APP for some reason, but can be played properly on a laptop or desktop site on mobile. Apologies, Premiere Pro is being a twat right now. This is a short documentary I made for my Final Major Project for college. Looking at the history of coal mining in areas such as Newstead and Pleasley. DISCLAIMER: Pleasley is in Derbyshire, but it was the most convenient and interesting country park and mining museum I could visit, as others such as Bestwood Country Park where only open on weekends at inconvenient times. Sorry to mislead. Also looking at the lives of miners, Thatcher's government and the miners strike of 1984-5 with mining unions. This was only 5 minutes long and wasn't as informative as I'd like but I will be making a 10 minute version of this documentary with more footage that I'd filmed. Also excuse how gross I look at the start of this documentary XD. Before all the technical stuff, first I want to give a massive thanks to Pleasley Pit Trust for the amazing work they've done protecting and ensuring the care and preservation of the colliery for everyone to enjoy. I'd definitely recommend visiting Pleasley Pit and hope they can continue their amazing work. Another massive thanks to Paul Dinsdale for letting me interview him and for being in my documentary! I'll be seeing you at the colliery!

The No.1 Engine house was the main building project after initial work on the shaft sinking, the roof girders were being placed in December 1910, the travelling crane of 20 ton capacity which ran along the top of the walls already being in position and in use handling the various engine parts.The engine contracts for this and the No.2 engine were let to Yates & Thom of the Canal Ironworks, Burnley, who had also supplied the initial boilers to the site. The ancilliary gear was contracted out to Fraser & Chalmers of Erith, Kent, a G.E.C. subsidiary. The total cost for the winding house in 1910 was £4133 ( £ 400,000 today. )The winding engine was completed at a total cost of £9677 ( Approx £1.035 million today) The winding engine which served the No 1 shaft is the largest surviving colliery winding engine of its type in Europe. It has four cylinders in twin tandem compound arrangement developing 3300 horsepower at 58 rpm. The engine was installed in 1912 and took two years to complete. It is connected to a bicylindro-conical drum which in turn was connected to the headgear pulleys to wind up the coal and wind down the miners and maintenance supplies. Most of the remainder of the colliery buildings and a second shaft with its gear have been destroyed and the winding gear is the last surviving example in the Lancashire coalfield.

Aerial view of the remains of the Glyn Pits Colliery in Pontypool South Wales which opened in 1840's and closed in 1932. The two shafts, Winding Engine House and Pump Engine House are remaining with believed steam engines 'in situ'. The railway that carried the coal and connected the Colliery have all long gone and have become a path for walkers and bikers. The site is being reclaimed by plant life and wildlife slowly.

Besides the pump engine, there are several other steam engines preserved at Papplewick Pumping Station. This one, from the Linby Colliery where Papplewick once got its coal from, is still operational. In service, it was used to winch cages full of coal or workers out of the mine. There is a second cylinder for the engine, which is out of sight on the other side of the winding drum.

Go 300 feet underground with a real miner and see what life was like for the thousands of men who worked at the coal face. An award-winning national museum that still retains many traits of its former role as a coal mine, standing high on the heather-clad moors of Blaenafon, the tunnels and buildings that once echoed to the sound of the miners now enjoy the sound of the footsteps and chatter of visitors from all over the world.

If you are ever going up the A580 East Lancashire Road near Leigh, call in at Astley Green Colliery Museum. It's a wonderful piece of history and a superb museum, as visited by the late Fred Dibnah. The pit head gear is one of few remaining in the UK and in urgent need of restoration. It would also be nice to see this steam engine working again one day. Any donations would be gratefully received by the museum. Astley Green Colliery Museum Higher Green Lane Astley Green Tyldesley Manchester Greater Manchester M29 7JB

The Bevercotes Mine near Retford in Nottinghamshire is a working experiment which will eventually lead to a completely automated pit, controlled by a computer. When it begins production later this year, it will be the world's first automatic coalmine.

Just over one year ago i learned about something really amazing that was hiding in plain sight. The Dorrance Colliery Fan house is a small complex that was responsible for providing ventilation for the coal mine that was up river. This place houses three fans and one of them has already fallen apart due to rot and decay. So one year later i am taking a look to see how the place is holding up. I was also joined by someone new, my friend Brent is known as Exploring 570 and he filmed a video for this channel so check it out. Enjoy ►Exploring 570 https://goo.gl/aR5ooZ Please Note: Exploring Abandoned locations can be dangerous. I don't condone or encourage anyone to enter an Abandoned structure. Not only is safety a concern, but often times its illegal. I simply go to document its history before it's gone and leave things the way I find them.

Titles read: '"Black Diamonds" - A Coal Cameo. Filmed at Bestwood, Nottingham.' Bestwood, Nottingham. Various shots of a coal mine. Men arrive at the mine and travel down to the coal face to work there; drilling, shovelling and blasting coal. An explosive charge is set off to break down the coal for loading into trucks. The trucks go up to the surface and into the tippler machine, where the coal is tipped out to be cleaned and sorted by men. Commentator says the average age of the men working here is 27. At the end of the working day, the men return their safety lamps. Good footage of a working coal mine. FILM ID:1066.24 A VIDEO FROM BRITISH PATHÉ. EXPLORE OUR ONLINE CHANNEL, BRITISH PATHÉ TV.

Ian and Peter go to inspect an old mine that's being closed and the winding engine sold off. Will the engine fit at the top of the shaft, and where will the Lancashire Boilers be installed? Can we get 800 foot of rope onto the drum? Can we employ the old Victorian winder driver with his bowler hat...?

So guys as you saw in the video it was a huge explore but was unable to get into most of the buildings as there where no climbable entrances and also after I left a van pulled up outside and it was security, they basically said to not go In there again and if I did I could be fined, so please be careful if you decide to explore this place as it is extremely risky and there is a good chance you will get caught by security, and you may come of worse if you are caught inside the complex rather than out (I was lucky) but anyways guys I hope you enjoyed the video and I will see you soon, bye.
