    Default Annesley Colliery, Nottinghamshire


    On a winters day with nothing much to do,
    I take a ride without a clue,
    and here I end up, after a wrong turn or two.

    Annesley Colliery is located just outside the village of Annesley, and Newstead in Nottinghamshire. It was originally sunk in 1864 into the Top Hard seam by the Worswick family who were originally from Leicestershire

    The Top Hard seam was mined for at least 50 years until the shaft was extended down to the Deep Hard seam in 1914. This was worked until 1950. At some point during this time the Deep Soft seam was opened and work until 1983.























    More history (when I finish it) and photos here

    Excellent pics mate, I like this place. Did you go underneath the clock tower building? And see the lockers and shower rooms? Enjoyed looking around there, and Fairygirl loved it all. :)

    I have a National Coal Board Annesley brick, but looking at the one you've posted, that one looks in better condiiton lol.

    Excellent work,

    I didn't bother with the bath house except for externals that day. You might have built your wall with that brick

    Brought back a few from here :) One just says Annesley, one says NCB Annesley, and the third one, National Coal Board Annesley.

    I've only just started collecting, but have around 30 ish, and always on the look out for different ones now. :)
