Loscoe Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)

Sunk circa 1830-35

Loscoe Colliery
This was sunk by Goodwin and Griffin in the early 1830's to work the Deep Hard and Deep soft seams. It was taken over in 1840 by E.D.Whittingstall and then by the Butterley Co in 1856 as part of their ever growing empire of coal workings ranging from Riddings to Ripley and Heanor. It continued work in these seams until they were exhausted and in an attempt to keep the mine going Roof coal and Ell coal were also worked but the mine closed in 1933.
