Offloading  Gullick's chocks at Rossington colliery Doncaster.
 
  Photograph taken 12 th of July 1990. The colliery was closed by British Coal in March 1993, then reopened in March 1994 by U.K.Mining. ( formerly R.J.B. Mining ) . The colliery then went on to produce 8.4 million tonnes of coal before production finally ceased in March 2006. The site was demolished in 2007 and is now a housing development. For the purists among us, the Wigan connection being the chocks, obviously.

For U.K. Mining, read U.K. Coal.
