I recently needed to find some pictures on the theme "industrial" and came across this project about a local colliery. It was taken with a Pentax P30 and using Ilford HP5plus. Both the colliery and the railway which serviced it are now closed of course, in fact it was on borrowed time when I took the pictures.

Yes, second and particularly the last one. It's amazing how fast it all disappeared isn't it!

Thanks to you all for your comments. The site is now a housing estate... presumably housing people who have to travel some distance to find work!

The last one is superb as are the ones showing it in the environment. They also look very crisp with very good tonality.In our DSLR world it's easy to forget film is capable of stunning results. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Andy. I worked in a number of pit villages in County Durham and the midlands after the pits closed.

Fine images there. Interesting how industrial 'warts' in a landscape can lead to good-looking photographs/paintings/art... Second and last in particular for me.
