    Default Daw mill colliery


    Hi all. Took me ages to learn how to upload so please forgive.



    Daw mill coillery...

    Spur of the moment joyride with my sis and her kids.
    Iwas here about 13 years ago the house nearby was still safe to explore.
    The pikeys have done a good job with it, to dangerouse to walk around. Didnt even take pics i dont think.
    Anyways it was quiet and a good 3 hours exploring the area (this was first time about 3 months ago)

    Nice site that. Shame most the buildings no longer exist.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    my brother and I went down an access tunnel that goes underneath all the old buildings that you remember.
    I would say we went 15 mins in.No signal on fone after about 2 mins very weird cold and hot and wet feeling.
    We got to a point where we needed a shovel to dig out a blocked bit. I must admit i was getting a bit scared.

    Btw this tunnel visit was a week after this visit.

    This is in walking distance from my home, is the house about 300yards away worth a look in, it used to have a sign outside stating it was "not for sale".....

    Yes about 300 yards past the gates. I was there years ago when it was safe to explore.
    Theres still some lovely shots to be taken around it such as the old coal carriage.
    I would deffo advise dont go in the house it is falling apart.It has been stripped of value
    and the roof looks like it could cave in at any moment.

    Such a shame, village is hoping daw mill is reinstated back to nature.... was very odd when the mine shut down, so many people lost their jobs and homes as a result
