Full Description

Oakerthorpe Colliery is named on the 1st ed. OS map of c. 1880. Several shafts and a crane are named, and railway lines connect the colliery with a tramway to the south-east. (1) The site is no longer named on the 2nd edition, and only a couple of buildings are shown, so the colliery had clearly gone out of use by that time. (2) Oakerthorpe Colliery at South Wingfield was owned by George Pearson & Co in 1873, so was presumably working by that date. It was still owned by the same firm in 1881. (2)
