Brinsley Headstocks
Brinsley Headstocks
Coal from the original shaft at Brinsley Colliery had almost been exhausted by the 1870s. A second deeper shaft was sunk in 1872 when tandem headstocks were erected but the reserves were once again exhausted by 1930. The shafts were kept open for another 40 years to provide access to neighbouring pits. The headstocks that now stand on the original site in Brinsley are the original structures of 1872, having been restored by British Coal and Nottinghamshire County Council in 1991.
