The Pit was sunk in the 1870s and produced coal until 1983.
Pleasley Colliery is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument and has become a wonderful mining heritage site.
The engine-house roofs and the chimney have been renovated and the winders have been restored by members of the Friends of Pleasley Pit preservation group.
There is also a splendid Pit Café and an entire nature reserve to enjoy!
