Demolishing Kiveton Park Colliery 1995
Demolishing Kiveton Park Colliery 1995
The colliery closed in 1994 and the main shaft buildings were demolished a year later. However, the mine's pithead baths were deemed to be of historical value and had a listed building order placed on them. But they never opened to public view and due to vandalism they were eventually demolished in 2013. The whole site has been landscaped and fishing ponds were added. The Norwood canal tunnel of the Chesterfield Canal passes close beneath and it has been proposed to untop the tunnel here and substitute a flight of locks in its place. But, as yet, nothing has materialised due to local problems and the inevitable cash shortage. In the photograph can be seen the huge electric winding apparatus.
