Down The Pit, Nottinghamshire's coal mines (By Victoria Knight).  Read Description-Important.
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!

Pit Village and Colliery a Bit of Old England
Our Travelling is The Learning and Our Learning is The Understaning. Please help my channel with a Donation to help me travel and take you to other areas around England Please click link to Donate ! https://www.paypal.me/abeer4Thomas/25 https://www.facebook.com/thomas.agnew.50 https://twitter.com/THOMASAGNEW19 The Mahogony Drift Mine is original to Beamish, having opened in 1855 and after closing, was brought back into use in 1921 to transport coal from Beamish Park Drift to Beamish Cophill Colliery. It opened as a museum display in 1979. Included in the display is the winding engine and a short section of trackway used to transport tubs of coal to the surface, and a mine office. Visitor access into the mine shaft is by guided tour.The colliery features both a standard gauge and narrow gauge railway - the former representing how coal was transported to its onward destination, and the latter typically used by Edwardian collieries for internal purposes. The standard gauge railway is laid out to serve the deep mine - wagons being loaded by dropping coal from the heapstead - and runs out of the yard to sidings laid out along the northern edge of the Pit Village. On the standard gauge railway there are two engine sheds in the colliery yard, the smaller brick, wood and metal structure being an operational building, the larger brick built structure being presented as Beamish Engine Works, a reconstruction of an engine shed formerly at Beamish 2nd Pit. Used for locomotive and stock storage, it is a long, single track shed featuring a servicing pit for part of its length, visitors can walk along the full length in a segregated corridor. A third engine shed has been constructed at the southern end of the yard (i.e. the other side of the heapstead to the other two sheds), also in brick (lower half) and corrugated iron, and is used for both narrow and standard gauge vehicles (on one road), although it is not connected to either system - instead being fed by low-loaders and used for long term storage only. The narrow gauge railway is serviced by a corrugate iron engine shed, and is being expanded to eventually encompass several sidings. There are a number of industrial steam locomotives (including rare examples by Stephen Lewin, from Seaham, and Black, Hawthorn & Co), and many chaldron wagons (the region’s traditional type of colliery railway rolling stock, and which became a symbol of Beamish Museum). The locomotive Coffee Pot No 1 is often in steam during the summer.Alongside the colliery is the pit village, representing life in the mining communities that grew alongside coal production sites in the North East, many having come into existence solely because of the industry, such as Seaham Harbour, West Hartlepool, Esh Winning and Bedlington.Miner's Cottages The row of six miner's cottages in Francis Street represent the tied housing provided by colliery owners to mine workers. Relocated to the museum in 1976, they were originally built in the 1860s in Hetton-le-Hole by Hetton Coal Company. They feature the common layout of a single-storey with a kitchen to the rear, the main room the house, and parlour to the front, rarely used (although it was common for both rooms to be used for sleeping, with disguised folding "dess" beds common), and with children sleeping in attic spaces upstairs. In front are long gardens, used for food production, with associated sheds. An outdoor toilet and coal bunker were in the rear yards, and beyond the cobbled back lane to their rear are assorted sheds used for cultivation, repairs and hobbies. Chalkboard slates attached to the rear wall were used by the occupier to tell the mine's "knocker up" when they wished to be woken for their next shift. No.2 is presented as a Methodist family's home, featuring good quality "Pitman's mahogany" furniture; No.3 is presented as occupied by a second generation well off Irish Catholic immigrant family featuring many items of value (so they could be readily sold off in times of need) and an early 1990s range; No.3 is presented as more impoverished than the others with just a simple convector style Newcastle oven, being inhabited by a miner's widow allowed to remain as her son is also a miner, and supplementing her income doing laundry and making/mending for other families. All the cottages feature examples of the folk art objects typical of mining communities. Also included in the row is an office for the miner's paymaster. In the rear alleyway of the cottages is a communal bread oven, which were commonplace until miner's cottages gradually obtained their own kitchen ranges. They were used to bake traditional breads such as the Stottie, as well as sweet items, such as tea cakes. With no extant examples, the museum's oven had to be created from photographs and oral history.School[edit] The school opened in 1992, and represents the typical board school. in the educational system of the era .
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.

Clipstone Colliery Headstocks
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/

Exploring Abandoned Coal Colliery - (huge explore)
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.

Colliery winding engine
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.

a postcard from the past – the engine man
The steam winding engines that were in common place in our coal mines are now a distant memory to those but a privileged few. In the mid 70’s I was fortunate enough to see both the Donisthorpe and Marquis (Rawdon) Collierys steam winders in operation. All three winders operated on shafts around 300 yards deep, at Donisthorpe Colliery the winder said he could manage around 58 runs an hour. He said the cage would be running at 30 feet per second.

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.

Aerial view of penallta colliery 2016.
Situated near Hengoed, in 1905 Powell Duffryn began the sinking of Penallta colliery, and had employed 291 men by 1908. The two shafts Nos.1 (downcast 783 yards (716 m)) and 2 (upcast 750 yards (690 m)), and at the time were the deepest in the South Wales Coalfield. The first coal was raised in 1909, with the railway served by the Cylla branch which connected it to both the Rhymney Railway from the Ystrad Mynach north junction, and the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway. By 1923 there were 2,395 men employed, producing from the Six Feet seam, and at peak production during the 1930s, there were in excess of 3,200 men employed. In 1930 it produced 975,603 tons, and in 1935 it held the European record for coal winding.[1]

Bestwood Colliery Winding Engine House (1st April 2014)
After visiting Midland Railway - Butterley in Derbyshire, I drove back into Nottinghamshire to visit Bestwood Country Park. The main reason for my visit, of course being industrial archaeological enthusiast, was the remains of Bestwood Colliery. In the country park, the preserved remains of Bestwood Colliery consists of the Winding Engine House with the Pit-Head Gear and the Dynamo House. As it was a week day, the winding house wasn't open to the public, so I couldn't get the chance to see the massive 1876-built vertical stationary steam engine. The opening times for the winding house is Saturday mornings from 10am to 12noon between Easter and October. However, I was quite impressed with the gigantic size of the colliery winding house, and even from the top of the hill overlooking the park, you can see how once it dominated the skyline of Bestwood village.
