Site of Rainford Colliery (Siding Lane Local Nature Reserve)
Siding Lane Local Nature Reserve occupies the site of the former Rainford Colliery. The shaft was sunk through sixteen feet of wet gravel and sand in 1860 and operated until the 1926 coal strike which caused the decline of the pit, finally closing in 1928.
