The next 2 photos below are of Blidworth Colliery in the 1960's

In the mid 1980's a decision was taken by British Coal to close several mines around Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Yorkshire.
Blidworth was one such mine that closed.

Our picture here shows the Blidworth Colliery headstocks during demolition
