Silkstone Main (Stainborough) Colliery Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)


Shown on the 1850 OS map as a half mile string of pits from Top Pit Wood in the west then along the Crane Brook Dyke to a site with engines. The pits were linked by a tramway which went on north-east all the way to Worsbrough Basin on the Dearne & Dove Canal.
The mine was closed by the 1892 survey.
NB the name Silkstone Main has been used to describe other mines in the Silkstone/Silkstone Common area.
