    Default Annesley Colliery Miners Welfare,Nottinghamshire,Nov 12


    After failing at this place a few months ago,i was passing on my way home from a near by splore,and thought id try my luck again......and gained access...was great to look around this place,,,it had a "happy" atmosphere to it,and im sure it has many stories to tell during its history.Originaly a welfare for the near by Colliery of the same name,for miners etc to relax in,drink cheaply,and entertain their families...unfortunatly it has been hit by the usual kids and thieves,to some extent...but still a good mooch about...The Welfare closed its doors for the final time in 2009,so i have been told..































    Apologies for the poor quality shots,all were hand held,and light was a struggle...thanks for looking...

    Cheers for sharing, it is trashed, but: I was bought up in a pub, and we used to have that exact trophy in your fifth shot as our trophy. Just bought it all back.
    Lovely shots, cheers for documenting it before its beyond recognition,
