    Default snowdown colliery(kent) june 2010


    this old industrial estate was built in 1907 and closed and capped off in 1988
    it's the only thing in it's area and is right by the station,where the coal was transported
    there are three mines,but could only find two of the capped plates

    this is the colliery when opened

    this is it when it closed

    a great place to explore but is getting smaller by the year
    hope you enjoy




    the two shafts,sealed up





    the main gate and ramp into the colliery


    comms problem!!


    the main gate













    the smaller building dotted around,nothing of much in them






    the largest and best of the buildings with an awesome winching system





    i did try and move the chain,but nothing!!


    a bit concerning




    fantastic brickwork out the back


    inside one of the smaller office




    still don't know what these mean!!

    Great stuff, I love old colliery buildings, even if there is little or nothing left.
