Heanor, Sunk 1847
Bailey Brook Colliery
This was sunk in 1847 by Butterley Co to work the Deep Hard and Deep Soft seams. The mines shafts were deepened in 1918 in order to work the Kilburn seams but this also gave access to the Piper and Low seams too.
Given the proximity of newer Ormonde Colliery nearby Butterley co decided to concentrate all its efforts there and closed the colliery in 1938.
