Showing the old machinery, huge lift shafts and many of the existing warning signs which kept miners safe from 1922 to 2003, this gallery gives a glimpse back at one of the area’s largest employers.

Adco Properties are currently redeveloping the site into a multi-use leisure facility but are keen to preserve the mining heritage – giving a large section to a mining museum and keeping as many original features as possible.
