I'd wanted to get back here since having a whip around the outside last December, so it was nice to get back and actually have somewhat of a proper look. We had no where near time to do a proper job, so will have to head back again some time. Large portions of the place seem to be locked up tight, Read more

There's been various reports from this place covering it pretty well, so nothing really new to add. We had a really nice relaxed morning wandering around, bumped into the security chap almost immediately but he was a good guy and was happy for us to have a look around which was nice.

Thoresby Colliery (Part 2), Nottinghamshire - September 2016
