    Mine and BL's first explore, nearly 2 years ago. I haven't been able to do much since then (birth of a baby daughter who takes up lots of my time!) - but it was a good first experience. I couldn't make it into the winder house, due to being too big for the access point. BL got in for a good look around and also took a cracking shot of some red knickers. I bet he'd been there before and left them there by accident.

    About a mile along the road is the remains of Earsdon Colliery, you can see it from Fenwick. Looks like most of the buildings there though are in use.
    Fenwick Colliery looks somewhat different to others - the buildings, architecture, layout, etc.

    Btw, contractors have started work on landscaping the spoil heap now.
