    Arrow Annesley colliery - Nottinghamshire.


    Visited on a very rainy day with scary mary˛ this was our first site of the day as we were planning to check out clipstone on the way back but it just kept lobbing it down so we just did this one for now:) Dating from 1865 Annesley Colliery was in use for over 130 years. Various phases of development occurred during the time of its use, mainly in the 1860/70’s, 1920/30’s and the late 1970/80’s. This has lead to a variety of styles of buildings on the site. At the time of its closure in 2000 it was the oldest running colliery in Nottinghamshire and the last remaining pit in the Hucknall and Bulwell area. The pit baths at the head of the site date from the 1930’s and possess an art deco style. Lots of stuff left behind like boots helmets etc but the site is mostly trashed now:(
