Brodsworth (Brodsworth Main Colliery) Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)

Brodsworth Colliery was a colliery near Woodlands, South Yorkshire, England that closed in 1990. It was renowned for the superb model village of Woodlands that housed its workers. The colliery was consistently amongst the highest employers of miners in Britain and still employed around 2,800 workers throughout the 1980s. The Colliery had 3 shafts and worked 4 seams. Barnsley & Dunsil at 1900FT level and then at 2,500 FT the Thorncliffe and Parkgate seams.

Where the pit stood is soon to become private owned housing and the once poisonous spoil tip has been regenerated into a magnificent community woodland. This is now owned by the Land Restoration Trust and is controlled by the Forestry Commission.
