Pleasley Colliery still retains its headstocks, engine houses and steam winders!

One was installed in 1904 by Lilleshall Co and the other in 1922 by Markham & Co

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!

Check out the Pleasley Pit Trust website HERE! for all sorts of information on the history of the site and winding engine action!
