    Cold War? Is it a museum? I'm surprised there's no rust on anything. The large engines are also on separate mounting pads to isolate vibration. It's a fascinating place.

    Welcome along. Not sure if you've tried but it's really easy to link from Flickr to this site. There's a share option on each image page. The mine experience looked a little shabby! Mind you, it's very good that they used some of the original passages and drift parts to help make it more realistic. It's one I failed to get to. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely building that. Mind you, that car parking is just shocking! The handle thingy is a pump - you see them at the base of access shafts into ROC posts and fixed to the wall. I've no idea why it's attached to bracketry and tin plate. Dirus will come along and tell us the name of those pumps (My mind fails me!).

    Chatterley Whitfield colliery was in operation from1860 to 1978. Prior to this coal had been mined from several much smaller pots, one to the east of the site, one just to the north of the main entrance and two to the south - one under Ball Green opposite the school and another where the southern part of the spoil tip now is. These last three each had direct rail connection but had all gone by 1900. When coal extraction transferred to Holditch colliery the Hesketh and Wolstanton shafts along...

    To be fair it got sealed up pretty quick, it was only open for a just over a week after it appeared online. I was lucky enough to get a look at it before it got secured. It was amazing,I have never seen so much old stuff left in one place. Tops the Hoarders place or even Barnsley's in my opinion. It seems there are few things I saw whilst there that are missing from your pics and looking at the exif data you were there only a few hours after me. I'm glad it's been sealed up otherwise...

    There were a load of clocks lined along top of mirror that have already "gone" I think they have been taken by the museum though.

    That's one hell of a find, glad it's all being rehomed.

    This design of chapel is almost identical to one that I had a lease to a few years back. There would have been outdoor toilets on the back corners of the central tower, this is what the signs probably refer to. The chapels themselves would indeed have been split between Anglican and Non-con.
