Abandoned part is full of water. On the right you can see a tube from which a lot of splashes release.

      Afternoon,
       
      Thought i had lost these pictures forever, but alas numerous devices raided for pictures and i managed to rescue enough to warrant a report. Had my eye on this place from the moment it closed, situated in a village with most of my family in it. Infact often looking out across the fields from the garden of their home wondering when it would actually close eager to have a look around somewhere that had not on shaped the surrounding landscape, but employed relatives over the years.. then it did... time for a look.
       
      History;
       
      Thoresby Colliery was a coal mine in north Nottinghamshire. The mine opened in 1925, and closed in 2015, then Nottinghamshire's last coal mine.
       
      The first two shafts in 1925 were sunk to 690 metres (2,260 ft). The shafts were deepended by 109 metres (358 ft) in the 1950s. After privatization of the National Coal Board in the 1990s the mine was taken over by RJB Mining (later UK Coal as UK Coal Thoresby Ltd).
       
      In April 2014 it was announced that the pit would close July 2015. The colliery's 600 employees had been reduced to 360 by the time of the closure in July 2015.
       
      The wander;
       
      Visited this place with non member xcon2icon/Frankie Jaeger - not sure what he wants to be referred to as.
       
      We had spent the last few nights camping in the Peak District, climbing and venturing into mines, so knowing i could count on the family to put us up and have a much needed shower we headed here. A few beers and roll ups later we decided that the big sprawling colliery we had been staring at for the last few hours while drinking needed to be done.
       
      Gaining access to the site was so very simple, however we soon saw a few vehicles on site and heard the beautiful sound of ravages barking in the distance. Not easily put off, we pressed further into the huge site. Looking round the corner of the explosives store building, a white 4x4 was parked up with a man slumped behind the wheel and a dog in there too. Thinking that was it we retreated back round the corner listening to the possessed dog go full retard, barking away. Thankfully the bloke was having a nap until his dog woke him up, we hid up watching mr security wake up and go for a drive as if he was doing his job properly. Leaving us to venture deeper onto the site.
       
      Enough waffle, on with the pictures... hours spent in here ducking and diving from at least 3 security vehicles, and hounds, cracking fun.
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       
      Unfortunately didnt have time to collect the crew hoodies we had ordered for the group shot  so none of them this time.
       
      Cheers for looking..

      This was an old Mine and Mill in Scotland I visited that has been around since the 1820s it was rebuilt after WWII when German Bombers dropped inceduries onto it.
      The lift and mine shaft to the mine is still pretty much intact so I think it may be possible to maybe descend with a rope into the mine it's self.
      There was a CCTV camera on one of the windows of the buildings but I'm sure this was a fake one and just there as a deterent to looters.
      It is the first explore I have done where vandals and looters havent yet ransacked the area so I decided to keep the name of the area private but if anyone wants to visit then shoot me a pm.

      The ruins of coal mines on the slopes of Mount Schmidt and the settlement "Ugolny Ruchei" ( "Coal creek" - from russian) near Norilsk were abandoned in 70's, when mining became unprofitable.
