    I'm sure I read a while back they planned on opening or reopening a mine in Nottinghamshire? I'm sure someone in the know can confirm :)

    Brilliant Sal, I never get tired of seeing the wonderful headgear from this place. And those baths are ace. Great stuff:)

    Your thinking of Harwoth on the Notts / Yorks border. It would be a case of reopening a pit that was extensively modernised before privatisation but has been mothballed for the last few years. Its one that badly needs to be taken out of the hands of UK Coal.

    Anyone who wants to see Annesley really shouldn't hang about. Its a great place even if it a lot worse for wear these days. The headstocks are easily the most relaxed climb in the UK. Given that the developer got their permission to demolish all the buildings the place is on borrowed time.

    A few from me. Really enjoyed visiting here given we've driven past a few times but never had time to stop for one reason or another.

    Excellent pics Hun, like the shot of me and Fairygirl, we look like dolls (even though I thought you were nuts to even think of climbing up there). Liked all the pics, much prefer yours to mine lol.

    Great pics guys....Myself and Thompski went here today...

    Rather than make a new post i`ll just add mine to your post :)

















    At some point during the day i knocked my camera onto manual focus and didn`t notice so i only got a few pics that just so happened to be in focus :(

    That was a great little explore with a surprising amount to see.
    someones flickr sets..
