Ties to the Land XV : Number 2 Updraft Shaft Pit Head Marker, Thurcroft Colliery
This is the pit head marker for Number 2 Upcast Shaft (or Shonkey as it was nicknamed) at Thurcroft Colliery in the South Yorkshire Coalfield. The Number One Downcast Shaft is enclosed in the fenced off area in the middle ground. Thurcroft Colliery was closed in 1992, the land cleared and given over to nature and dirt bikers.
