SJ9603 : Bridge to Holly Bank Colliery

taken 27 years ago, near to Essington, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Bridge to Holly Bank Colliery
Bridge to Holly Bank Colliery
The railway which served Hilton Main and Holly Bank collieries survived long enough to inconvenience the builders of the M6 motorway, necessitating the building of the bridge I'm standing on here. The former crossing keeper's cottage and colliery wages office is visible in the centre of the shot. Holly Bank Colliery was to the right of the crossing keeper's cabin, roughly where the houses are on the skyline. The bridge now carries a footpath.
