  Gedling Colliery 1937. Retake. by Yelhsa Ballard Very good as it locates the colliery in Gedling as it was in 1937 and before houses spread down from Apple Tree Hill to towards the colliery. (RogerB)   Sulphur? Fungi? by parcher Nice (TwllMawr)   underground by sparty_lea NewStuff, I found it...... (legendrider)   Easington Colliery 1980s. by simonrail 5 from me too. That's an organised pit yard, look at the effort that's gone into that framework just to hold the spare winding sheaves. I've seen them propped against a wall before now.... (inbye)   Easington Colliery 1980s. by simonrail well, I give it 5* - the headgears are lovely but the car park clinched it! (legendrider)   Artefacts by SimonRL No comment left (Red78)   Opening the deep adit 1971 by Graigwen No comment left (Red78)   Cages by Eddie Forrester No comment left (Red78)   Top Adit by Eddie Forrester No comment left (Red78)   Stope by Barney No comment left (Welshken.)
