About this image
The picture shows slagheaps from the Eckington Plumbley Colliery which have been re-inhabited by birch woodland. Known locally as 'Seldom Seen' colliery the engine house (not seen here) is now restored and part of a preservation order. The colliery was sunk about 1860 and closed in the early part of the 1900's.
