This historical documentary series was filmed some time ago! The buildings today are now locked and are not accessible to the public! ---------- Please Subscribe for new video every Friday 10AM! ----------- This is our first look at the abandoned Colliery buildings. This video was filmed months ago and I hear all buildings are now sealed again now. The tunnels that stretch out for miles are sealed today, the shafts were filled in and all the tools and equipment left down there like a time capsule. http://www.dovermuseum.co.uk/Exhibitions/Coal-Mining-in-Kent/History/Snowdown-Colliery.aspx http://www.dover-kent.com/Working-Mens-Club-Aylesham.html I explored with Jamie Dench check his vlogs: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgQNRohOo0CcB8nsR04nslQ Music: It Is Lost by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100190 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ #dovertunnels #doverww2 #doverhistory #iks #pillbox

Snowdown colliery abandoned coal mine KENT
 
05:44
We decided it was worth just have a look around this abandoned coal mine. Pretty much just empty shells but was still cool to see. We also found some underground tunnels, so gave these a little go. Wasnt too happy with the video and how the audio came out but it is what it is. Here is some history of the colliery. Snowdown Colliery was conveniently situated alongside the main Dover to Canterbury railway line, near to Ackolt which lies between Womenswold and Nonington. The Colliery was begun by Arthur Burr’s Foncage Syndicate in 1907, and the first sod was cut by Mrs Weston Plumptree. The first shaft at Snowdown encountered the problem many Kent coal shafts had experienced in the years previously: the shaft hit water at 260 ft and flooded. Twenty-two men drowned in the disaster. Despite this bad start, in the proceeding years there were few sinking problems and Snowdown became the first commercial pit in Kent in 1912. In this year, the first coal was brought to the surface from a depth of 1370ft on 19th November 1912. Two months later, in January 1913 the “Beresford” seam was reached. At 5’6” thick, this seam enabled 800 tons per week to be mined. In 1920, the Emergency Powers Bill temporarily increased wages for six months. The result of this was reduced pay for miners and thus in 1921 the Snowdown workers went on strike and the company went into receivership. The result of the strike was the colliery closed in 1922, although it maintained pumping operations so it could be sold as a working mine. The colliery was mothballed for almost two years before it was purchased in 1924 by Pearson & Dorman Long who had started a new colliery at Betteshanger. Pearson & Dorman Long completely modernised the colliery, scrapping the old steam winding plant and installing a powerful electric one. They then purchased a 600 acre site and a Public Utility Society, Aylesham Tenants Ltd. The company also built Aylesham village nearby, in order to house 650 mining families. Prior to this, most of the Snowdown miners had lived in Dover. Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke. - Credit to DoverMuseum The mine later closed in 1987 Thanks for watching Please like, share and subscribe You can find us on Facebook and Instragram Filmed on DJI Osmo in 4K -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Community care village Abandoned UNEXPLORED " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35rshufdyiM -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Harworth Colliery: Towering Above The Rest
 
03:58
A short montage of Harworth Colliery featuring its towers, in which number one tower stood proud as Nottinghamshire's tallest building at 80m tall until its demolition on the 11th of April 2016. Built between 1986 and 1989 it was the tallest mining tower in Europe and housed the largest and most powerful winding motor in UK mining history at a huge 4000kw. The tower was built using the UK's first 'slipform' method which used a continuous supply of concrete and would be built non-stop rising at one inch every 24 hours. The same method was later used to build Wembley Stadium in London and Cottam power station chimneys. On the 10th of April 2016, a controlled explosion failed to demolish her after hundreds of current and former Harworth & Bircotes residents and ex-miners braved the morning cold. It was decided by lunch time that the demolition crew would bring in remote robots to hammer at her foundations, but even that proved too difficult and by the falling darkness, they stopped work until the next day. On the 12th of April 2016, she fell at 08.17. There was deep heartbreak and anger after lack of information mean't no one knew she would be coming down early in the morning, so most people missed her fall. Her fall marks the end of 93 years of mining at Harworth. The land has permission to build up to 1600 houses with shops, parks and a new school. I WELCOME COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE NO OFFENSIVE ONES OR THEY WILL BE REMOVED AND YOU WILL BE REPORTED. Thank you.

Pit Village and Colliery a Bit of Old England

Our Travelling is The Learning and Our Learning is The Understaning. Please help my channel with a Donation to help me travel and take you to other areas around England Please click link to Donate ! https://www.paypal.me/abeer4Thomas/25 https://www.facebook.com/thomas.agnew.50 https://twitter.com/THOMASAGNEW19 The Mahogony Drift Mine is original to Beamish, having opened in 1855 and after closing, was brought back into use in 1921 to transport coal from Beamish Park Drift to Beamish Cophill Colliery. It opened as a museum display in 1979. Included in the display is the winding engine and a short section of trackway used to transport tubs of coal to the surface, and a mine office. Visitor access into the mine shaft is by guided tour.The colliery features both a standard gauge and narrow gauge railway - the former representing how coal was transported to its onward destination, and the latter typically used by Edwardian collieries for internal purposes. The standard gauge railway is laid out to serve the deep mine - wagons being loaded by dropping coal from the heapstead - and runs out of the yard to sidings laid out along the northern edge of the Pit Village. On the standard gauge railway there are two engine sheds in the colliery yard, the smaller brick, wood and metal structure being an operational building, the larger brick built structure being presented as Beamish Engine Works, a reconstruction of an engine shed formerly at Beamish 2nd Pit. Used for locomotive and stock storage, it is a long, single track shed featuring a servicing pit for part of its length, visitors can walk along the full length in a segregated corridor. A third engine shed has been constructed at the southern end of the yard (i.e. the other side of the heapstead to the other two sheds), also in brick (lower half) and corrugated iron, and is used for both narrow and standard gauge vehicles (on one road), although it is not connected to either system - instead being fed by low-loaders and used for long term storage only. The narrow gauge railway is serviced by a corrugate iron engine shed, and is being expanded to eventually encompass several sidings. There are a number of industrial steam locomotives (including rare examples by Stephen Lewin, from Seaham, and Black, Hawthorn & Co), and many chaldron wagons (the region’s traditional type of colliery railway rolling stock, and which became a symbol of Beamish Museum). The locomotive Coffee Pot No 1 is often in steam during the summer.Alongside the colliery is the pit village, representing life in the mining communities that grew alongside coal production sites in the North East, many having come into existence solely because of the industry, such as Seaham Harbour, West Hartlepool, Esh Winning and Bedlington.Miner's Cottages The row of six miner's cottages in Francis Street represent the tied housing provided by colliery owners to mine workers. Relocated to the museum in 1976, they were originally built in the 1860s in Hetton-le-Hole by Hetton Coal Company. They feature the common layout of a single-storey with a kitchen to the rear, the main room the house, and parlour to the front, rarely used (although it was common for both rooms to be used for sleeping, with disguised folding "dess" beds common), and with children sleeping in attic spaces upstairs. In front are long gardens, used for food production, with associated sheds. An outdoor toilet and coal bunker were in the rear yards, and beyond the cobbled back lane to their rear are assorted sheds used for cultivation, repairs and hobbies. Chalkboard slates attached to the rear wall were used by the occupier to tell the mine's "knocker up" when they wished to be woken for their next shift. No.2 is presented as a Methodist family's home, featuring good quality "Pitman's mahogany" furniture; No.3 is presented as occupied by a second generation well off Irish Catholic immigrant family featuring many items of value (so they could be readily sold off in times of need) and an early 1990s range; No.3 is presented as more impoverished than the others with just a simple convector style Newcastle oven, being inhabited by a miner's widow allowed to remain as her son is also a miner, and supplementing her income doing laundry and making/mending for other families. All the cottages feature examples of the folk art objects typical of mining communities. Also included in the row is an office for the miner's paymaster. In the rear alleyway of the cottages is a communal bread oven, which were commonplace until miner's cottages gradually obtained their own kitchen ranges. They were used to bake traditional breads such as the Stottie, as well as sweet items, such as tea cakes. With no extant examples, the museum's oven had to be created from photographs and oral history.School[edit] The school opened in 1992, and represents the typical board school. in the educational system of the era .

Where To Find Gold In The UK?
 
02:36
Where to find gold in the UK? We take a look at where to find gold UK. What many people don't realise is that you can find gold in the UK. Finding gold can be extremely exciting, but you have to know where to look. England has always been known as a wealthy country, but the mineral wealth has never gotten much attention. The country is actually quite rich in mineral resources, and there have been discoveries of various minerals all across the UK. Different areas have produced different minerals deposits. Iron, copper, silver, tin and lead have all been mined in England, but with the high price of gold in recent years there has been increasing interest in gold from casual prospectors. In this video we take a look at some of the best places to find gold in the UK. Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

The coal mining industry was one of the biggest employers in the UK, and the cinemagazine 'Mining Review' was shown in half the cinemas in the country - and not just in mining areas. This edition is a window into working-class life in the 1950s. A young family moves into a new house in the Midlands, one of thousands built for miners; the 16-year-old Coal Queen is crowned at Tamworth Gala; coal cutting and lifting equipment is in use at Plean Colliery, Scotland. And stealing the show, eight husky miners from the West Riding Colliery, resplendent in tutus, perform Delibes' 'Coppélia' for charity at Normanton Central Town Club. (Ros Cranston)

EXPLORING AN UNDERGROUND RIVER WE FOUND AT THE UKS BIGGEST ABANDONED COAL MINE!
 
18:15
We went out recently over Daw Mill Colliery one of the UKs largest coal producers before its closure to see whats now become of this once thriving site. we had a good explore above ground and then started below were we came across a pretty fast flowing underground river! Daw mill colliery history: Daw Mill was the largest mine and biggest producer of coal in its region, located just outside of a town called Nuneaton. It first opened in 1956 with the first shaft being sunk between 1956-1959 and the second sunk between 1969-1971. The mine was a natural extension of former collieries Kingsbury and dexter all of which mined in the five metre Warwickshire coal field known as the Warwickshire thick. After the denationalisation of the coal industry Daw Mill was brought by UKCoal and by 2008 nearly 700 people worked at the mine, it was also this year that Daw Mill produced over 3.25million tons of coal beating a 13 year old record for annual output. However as early as 2009 talks about Daw Mill future had begun with coal prices dropping each year and railway threats to business. In 2009 Daw Mill was rated the most technologically advanced and most productive mine in Europe. The colliery was situated on the Birmingham to nuneaton line just east of the former Shustoke railway station. In 1983 an inclined tunnel linking underground workings with the surface was completed. This drift mining enabled Daw Mill to increase its production capacity as it removed the often time-consuming process of winding coal up the shafts. On record 3 men have been killed at Daw Mill in mining accidents in 2006 and 2007. In 2011 UKCoal was fined 1.2million pounds for safety breaches. On 22nd February 2013 a major fire broke out in the mine 500 metres underground and was described as the worst underground blaze in Britain for 30 years, no one was injured however with the fire unable to be put out for months the damage left behind compared with profits each year was not justified and the mine never re-opened after the fire. Daw Mill was the last remaining colliery in the West Midlands, once operating 20 collieries. Most the the Daw Mill site has now been demolished and the remaining buildings in recent years have really taken a beating from vandals (even last year the remaining buildings were in pretty good shape) unfortunately id never taken my camera before so thought I would this time to film what remains. most of the shoots with the convyer belts are now filled completely with water and only one still has room to get down into, the house remains, power room, a couple of odd sheds and warehouses, and of course all the underground fun. This video will be in 2 parts so keep an eye out for the second part coming soon! if you could drop the page a subscribe and like the video that’ll be much appreciated cheers all!

So guys as I said in the video, this was one of the more interesting places I’ve been. I don’t know a great deal of history on the Gallery, but it was part of the western heights complex in west Dover. I also want to thank SubExploration with helping me with mapping and pin points for locations. I will also be doing a private tour of a special location that is never usually open to the public very soon, some time in early December probably. Also, I will be returning to Dover very soon as the amount of explorers and locations down there is unreal, it truly is an amazing place for exploring and urbexing. But anyways guys I hope you enjoyed the video, if yo did please give it a like, subscribe if you’re new. And let’s get that 900 subscriber waymark by December, and well done to SubEx for hitting 1.4K so quickly. So yeah guys, see you next week, bye.

Aylesham 90th Anniversary Celebration
 
08:02
This video records the events delivered in June 2017 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Aylesham Village. They encouraged everyone to come together. Local community groups, businesses and clubs took part to showcase the activities and services they offer. Young and old came together to share activities and everyone who took part had the chance to learn about Aylesham, each other and most importantly to have some fun together. The events were delivered by local partners with the help of Celebrate! Lottery Funding and the Armed Forces Day Fund. It is 90 years since the first village residents moved into the new houses that were built here following the rapid expansion of the Kent Coalfields in 1927. Many of the original families are still resident in the Village and Aylesham has a powerful community spirit with strong links to the mining traditions of the past. For example, the first Aylesham Parish Clerk will be celebrating his 100th birthday here during 2017. Aylesham Village has suffered decline since the pit closures of the 1980s and it is once again experiencing huge change, the Village is about to double in size as a major housing regeneration project gets underway. The planning process has been a long and bruising experience for the area but the first phase of over 200 homes have now been built and, once again, new Aylesham residents are starting to settle into newly built homes in the Village - 90 years after the founding villagers arrived.

New Hawne Colliery Abandoned coal mining buildings. Gopro hero 5 black
 
16:21
New Hawne Colliery began production in 1864 on a 48 acre site which is now mainly a park and nature reserve. It stopped production in 1926 when it was killed off by the general mining strike. This video is an exploration of the remaining buildings on this site. I filmed this video mainly on the new Gopro hero 5 black in 1080 at 24 fps. The results could have been better but I think that I need to get used to the camera for better results, we shall see in the next video! Enjoy folks!

Aylesham to Snowdown Colliery - rural exploration
 
07:47
A trip to the ex mining village of Aylesham by bus, walking out to the old colliery at Snowdown and looking at old rural features along the way, and finally looking at the incredible waste and sadness of the closed colliery. I met an ex-miner in Aylesham and we had a quick chat. He felt it was awful that the pits are closed when there are so many young people out of work. I caught the train home as the buses to this town are so irregular, and locals were saying the timetables aren't accurate. This video is part of a series I will be creating, visiting different towns and villages around kent to explore urban and rural environments in a gentle way, with a particular interest in the social and minor histories of places which are often only visited at their grandest or most expensive points! Ethical adventuring? Conscious adventuring? Who knows :)

A coal mine in Poland fuels a 2 MW cogeneration plant - English Subt
 
03:33
Polska Grupa Górnicza has decided to turn risk into opportunity. The methane naturally produced during mining activities is a threat to miners, so in 2013 the company decided to install a 2 MW cogeneration plant. The methane is extracted from the mine and conveyed to the plant, and the electricity produced is used to power the machinery. The heat produced, meanwhile, supplies the office heating system and a nearby residential area. FIND OUT MORE INFO AT: http://www.cogenerationchannel.com
Dalzell House in Motherwell. Just a quick video
 
01:31
The 15th- or early 16th-century tower house was built by the Dalzell family, who acquired these lands in the 13th century. Thomas de Dalzell fought at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. Sir Robert Dalzell forfeited the lands in around 1342, for residing in England without the King's consent,[3] but they were restored through marriage in the 15th century. Another Sir Robert Dalzell was created Lord Dalzell in 1628, and his son was further elevated as Earl of Carnwath in 1639. In 1645 the Earl of Carnwath granted the Dalzell estate to his nephew James Hamilton of Boggs, who built the first major extensions to the tower house, adding the south wing around 1649.[1] By 1750, avenues of trees had been laid out in the grounds, probably the work of Archibald Hamilton, 4th of Dalzell.[3] The 7th Hamilton laird, another Archibald Hamilton, entered into a venture with the reformer Robert Owen. An attempt was made to build a model settlement at the Hamiltons' nearby property of Orbiston, but this proved an expensive failure.[3] In the 19th century the family's fortunes were enhanced by the Lanarkshire coal mining boom, and in the 1850s John Hamilton (1829–1900), a Liberal politician later ennobled as Baron Hamilton of Dalzell, commissioned a major remodelling of the house. Architect Robert William Billings carried out extensive restorations to the earlier buildings, and added a new north wing. Billings had recently published The Baronial and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Scotland (1852), four volumes of engravings of Scottish architecture, and he drew heavily on this source material in his work at Dalzell. He lived at Dalzell for three years while overseeing the works.[1] Andrew Cassels, a local man, undertook work on the gardens and grounds, possibly supervised by Billings.[1] The south wing was also restored in 1869, following a fire.[4] Lord Hamilton served in the government of William Gladstone, who visited Dalzell on several occasions, and the Prince and Princess of Wales visited in 1888.[3] On the death of the 2nd Baron in 1952, the property was sold out of the Hamilton family. Part of it was used as a boys' school until 1967, when it was purchased by Motherwell and Wishaw Town Council.[3] The house then stood empty until the 1980s when developer Classical House renovated the property as a series of 18 private apartments. The interiors retain Billings' Jacobean detailing

Geotechnical testing and site validation works for UK Coal's Waverely development (part 2/2)
 
05:32
Since 1994, UK Coals property arm, Harworth Estates, has presided over the largest brownfield reclamation project South Yorkshire has ever seen an epic undertaking that will eventually transform the former Orgreave colliery -an area larger than the nearby Sheffield city centre - into Waverley, a £100m prototypical 21-century sustainable community, featuring 4,000 homes, countless associated facilities, and world-class commercial hubs. To be developed in phases up until 2030, Waverley will boast laudable green credentials such as energy efficient passive homes, comprehensive waste and recycling strategies, accessible public transportation options, extensive paths and walkways, and enhanced wildlife habitats (over half the site is made up of open spaces, woodland and lakes). The site has been backfilled and RSK Group was commissioned to ensure that material will stand firm as a building platform. www.waverleycommunity.org.uk/

The Air Up There - Armthorpe Pit Top
 
03:56
Aerial Footage of a flight from Armthorpe Pit Top During the late 19th and for most of the 20th century Armthorpe became known for its Coal mining and a deep seam Colliery was sunk. The pit was named Markham Main. The mining increased the local population dramatically and whole new housing estates were constructed to house the mining workers. These housing estates were famous for their architectural layout. From the air you can see that the houses are formed into rings or crescents, similar examples can be seen in Rossington. After the closure of the mine 1996 the area went through deep depression. The old colliery site is now a large housing estate, with a thriving community with parks and tracks for walking and cycling to the local wood.
