    Default Clipstone Colliery - 05/09


    had been wanting to see this for ages and only just got round too it unfortunatly a little to late as the winding house has some heavy trashing and pikey damage to the generators but fook knows how there getting the loot out its gotta be an insider job :banghead

    some prat shouted at us going in and again when we were up one of the headstocks but was nowhere to be seen when we got back and nipped in the shop, all gob me thinks so up yours pal :D





    we only went to the first wheel, these headstocks are fecking huuuuge!!! we later went Annesly which seemed miniture in comparison











    winding houses were epic and huuuge





    unfortunatly have been heavily smashed up in the last few months :banghead:crazy





    the lifts were double decker....sorry fl**sh :gay



    eh :confused







    usually im good with heights but my knees were like jelly on the way down! these are huge and as you can see stairway to the top hangs off the structure

    great to finally get a colliery done, cant believe i didnt get here late 2008 when i wanted to as said its gone downhill bigtime since then

    It's good stuff, the view is epic! :) Though I have to agree, I had "Disco legs" when climbing up too!
