Lippy Ladies Project - Hatfield Main Colliery Doncaster
After a hiatus during the winter the Lippy Ladies project has started up again.
I drove over to Hatfield Main Colliery near Doncaster to meet up with Helen.
Helen is originally from a Yorkshire mining village and learned to ride motorcycles on the slag heaps when she was a teenager.
After speaking to security we were allowed onto the site but not permitted to go any closer due the work in progress back filling the 1 mile deep access shaft.
Hatfield colliery opened in 1916 and shut down in June of 2015, unable to sell its coal due to increases in the UK carbon tax. In November 2015 the two headstocks were Grade II listed.
I shot on m Canon 5D2 bodies with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 USM L, Canon 16-35mm f2.8 USM L II and Canon 70-200 f2.8 USM L IS lenses.
