Hi all. I recently joined a mine tour at the old Chatterley Whitfield Colliery at Tunstall, Stoke on Trent. The visits take place at various points during the year and are organised by the Friends of Chatterley Whitfield Charity. Unfortunately the old Museum that came about when the pit closed in the late 1970s, closed in 1994. Therefore you cannot go underground any longer, but site tours are still allowed to take place thanks to the volunteers at the Friends of Chatterley Whitfield. Most of the buildings are still standing, like the Hesketh pit head and winding building, but they are in a state of poor repair. I have uploaded some photos for anyone looking to build their layout around a colliery. If anyone lives nearby and is interested in a visit, details on the Friends of Chatterley Whitfield can be found here: https://chatterleywhitfieldfriends.org.uk I have a vision of a layout of a lifetime at some point in the future that will include the Chatterley Whitfield colliery as my late Grandfather worked there all his working life, from 1936 up until the pit closed in the late 1970s. Happy Sunday everyone Andrew.
