Smithy Wood Colliery Coal Colliery (United Kingdom)


Smithy Wood first appears on the 1905 OS map as a small colliery with a bank of coke ovens. The site was expanded in the 1930s with a new Coke and Gas Ovens to the east of the original site across the MS&L railway line. The site was operational until the later days of the coal industry in South Yorkshire. The colliery at Thorpe Hesley one and a half miles to the NE seems to have been associated with Smithy Wood (labelled Smithy Wood Colliery (Norfolk Pit) on the 1930s OS map.
