Califat Colliery

Califat Colliery
The mines on Swannington Common operated in the 18th and 19th century on a small scale, and Califat Colliery was one of these. The local heritage trust have undertaken excavations of the remains and also erected a replica horse gin and headframe with the horse and driver seen here. It is all very well done and the area is well worth a visit.
