Dirt Tipping - Page 2
- Aerial photography once a year by private firms produced plans and photographs and even volumes, greatly assisted the work of the Surveyor. The tip was divided into areas and covered with a layer of soil that was seeded with grass. Some of the tip to the rear facing onto the forest was planted with trees.
- The 2 shafts were eventually filled and one headstock demolished January 2018. The other at that time was still in situ. The area was designated for future housing and possible industry.
- The tip at the closed Welbeck Colliery (2010) seen from the A60 when travelling from Worksop to Mansfield still remains grey and un-grassed in 2018, albeit that the shafts had been filled with demolition rubble and capped in 2010 and a section of the former pit top designated for industrial use.
