Thought I had little excuse but to have a look around this one, it's practically in my back garden.

Had the dog with me so couldn't venture past heras etc. Will stick a proper report up when I have a full look.

This is actually from the main railway in coalville, which was transported to the mine when it closed to preserve it.

A barge, not sure why that's there!

Will try and get back soon and see what else I can get. ?

Only pain is that there's an active cinema on site, and it's overlooked on 2 sides by houses...

Definitely looks worth dodging a camera for and an early start to avoid the neighbours :)
