Stockton Colliery. Opened 1927, closed 1960.
Hmmm.... it looks suspiciously like a concrete structure.... and in your backyard too!
Amazing monument to leave behind... is there more relics around?
2,750,806 tons is a lot of coal.....
What a lovely facade , you've done a fab job on this image C
If that is the last thing I saw before going underground I would change my job , quick !
Good shot !
:))) Abandon hope?? Pretty fancy entrance for a coalmine. I always swore I'd never work underground..and didn't, thank X!
There are a few busted up relics around Stuart....and lots of collapsing tunnels all around this area. And mullock heaps everywhere....and big blue lakes :-)
Yes Michael, underground is fascinating. One part of me wants to see what is down there (in any tunnel etc) and the other part shudders at the thought of all that dirt overhead!!
I think it takes a special breed, Jock...to work underground these days!
Thank You Lex, it was a bit tricky with all those shadows around there!
It's shadows that drive me nuts with the Lumix TZ40. Because there is no view finder, light on the screen means you cannot see the subject properly. ...
I'm never going anywhere again without my SLR... [:-)
