Description:These ruins are all that remained of site of the old Lawn Colliery. The photograph was taken from Glover's Farm to the west. Lawn Colliery started in the 1860s, producing domestic coal, but like most of the collieries in the Berry Hill area, closures stared before the end of the century. The colliery was originally on land owned by the Lawn estate.
