Car House Colliery

Car House Colliery
Car House Colliery along with Aldwarke Main, to which it was connected underground, in Rotherham was ocquired by the Sheffield steelmakers Sir John Brown & Co in 1873. It appears to have been closed soon after flooding claimed the lives of eight miners in 1913 and the 1923 OS map shows much of the site cleared. In spite of being closed for 100 years there are still some buildings surviving from the pit, including this winding enginehouse in the yard of a waste management company.

Had hoped to be coming over this year. Would probably do it in the Fall to be away from tourists.
