Draycott Cross Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)

Built into a disused railway tunnel, Draycott Cross Colliery consisted of a number of adits descending into the hillside. A narrow gauge railway was installed with electric winding gear to transport the coal out of the mine.

The mine closed in 1991 after less than a decade of operation.
