Wyrley Grove Colliery (Brownhills Colliery) Coal Mine (United Kingdom)


Worked from 1852 to 1950, there is a nice potted history on an interpretation board, photo included. Although mining ceased in 1950 the plant was still in use for some time after. I have memories of the site at work in the very early 1960s, including a steam locomotive at work on the site.
The site is notable in the area as at this time (2020) it probably has the most intact surface remains in the area, including the weigh house with scales still inside. The future of the site however, is uncertain.
