Some shots taken last Saturday at Vicar Water Country Park Notts. The headstocks from the Clipstone pit still remain, and have been standing for quite a few years since the pit closed. I believe they are the tallest in the country and have a preservation order on them, There is a lot of disagrement in the area as to wether they should stay or not.

I vote they go, Sylvia, they spoil for me what would be a beautiful view. Love V.6. Carol

I don't think they look any worse than some large modern sculptures and they are a testamamt to the past history of the area: but they are NIMBY of course and if the view from my home included them then perhaps I'd feel differently. A difficult one.
But what's certain is the beauty of the surrounding autumnal scene so well recorded in this set, Sylvia.

I love these headstocks, I believe they were the third highest in the World at the time, I have photographed them myself a few times as my Sister in law lives fairly nearby.

I love the headstocks - I often pass them on my way to work and at 6:30am when the sun is coming up behind them they do instill a little bit if local pride somehow. They should stay - the only thing that should be done is something with the land around them, what a waste!

Great shot too by the way! Looks a bit different now then when I was a kid mind!
