Full Description

Loscoe Colliery was probably sunk in the 1830s to work the Deep Soft and the Deep Hard coal. It is shown on the 1st edition OS map of 1836. It was owned by Goodwin and Griffin, was then taken over in about 1840 by E D Whittingstall and again by the Butterley Company in about 1856. The Colliery was closed in 1933 after having tried to work the Roof Coal and the Ell Coal in a last attempt to keep it going. (1)
