About: EXPLORING AN ABANDONED COAL MINE (SNOWDOWN)
the lower level of the biulding with the crane has 2 rooms you poked your camera into the smaller room the other room is better as it has all the motor controlls still intact for the winding gear for the pit head
Closed in 1987, shafts capped 1988.
Just over 3000ft deep.
Shame there's no way in.
The rain gives it a more atmospheric feel to these sadly abandoned buildings, lovely video!
Classic iks great explore my missis likes putting rain sound on her headphones and going to sleep relaxed just glad she's not wet the bed yet always makes me need to go toilet listening to it 😂
wow that was awesome
It just goes to show how quickly nature takes back what we build amazing
I really like the sound of these old switches.
It has a rainforest vibe. I like it!
Checkout "UAV PAP" Channel for aerial footage of remains of South Wales mines...
To be honest ,wearing half a uniform with tights and sneakers ???????
Listening to that water makes me want to go the toilet 🚽😂
Another average British summertime then? Rain everywhere!
I actually live in aylesham which is just half a mile away from snowdown
No collieries left to explore much.Many closed around me from 1992 onwards,they were no sooner closed that the demolition firms from away came in,and reduced the buildings to rubble,cut up the metalwork ,hacked up the yards and paths and felled the headstocks which silhouetted the skylines.All done with indecent haste,like murderers attempting to hide a body or the evidence of their crimes.And a crime it was.
The beginning reminds me of S.t.a.l.k.e.r a bit, kept expecting to see a pack of boars or dogs.

I was lucky enough to see the premiere of the new documentary "A Century of Coal" on Saturday. Gives a fascinating background to the coal mines of East Kent.
It'll be available of DVD via the new museum at Betteshanger Parks and is being re-shown at the Astor in September - https://bookwhen.com/coal
You can get on the roof of that first building you went inside. From the roof of the single storey toilet block outside, over to the ladder up the outside. Excellent views from above. I threw a shitty red plastic rope around the bottom rung of a ladder on the back of that big square building you went in second, wonder whether it stayed there and was of use to others. I got it up there and didn't even manage to climb it myself.
love the vids just calm down saying folks lmao say something like ppl
The building with the 45 Ton overhead crane,is No2 Shaft Winding engine house.The previous building you were in,was the main store.The first building was the Engineering Workshop,hence the "moving machinery" sign.
