    Default Annesley Colliery - April '09


    Had nothing to do, so Mendo suggested we have a nip over to the remains of Annesley Colliery just over the border in Nottinghamshire. I think the history of the former Colliery has already been done, (plus i can't find it :blush) So onto the pics instead.

    The headstocks.








    A tiny bit of the Narrow Gauge.


    The Electricity Shop




    Upstairs in the Electric Building

    No need to apologise about the amount of pics, imo. The more the merrier from here.
    They are fab pics too, Sal...1 and 3 are stunning.
    Nice work. :)

    Hey Sal, those pics are Brill. I love the one of the Narrow gauge tramway and the shot of the showers and the Headstock close up were excellent.:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Seeing photo's of places like this just reminds you of how many people lost their jobs when the collieries were closed down

    Every village and town around me and including my village were all mining places. Now there's two left, Welbeck and Thoresby, (just over the border into Nottinghamshire). Welbeck is going to close (no idea on when yet) and they're spending loads of money on Thoresby, so soon, that will be the only one left locally.
