About Lower Pilsley

This part of my website is still very much under construction, 
many of the links below won't be working yet!.

dot_clear.gif (43 bytes)Lower Pilsley is a small village in North Derbyshire, England, originally a mining village, the pits have long since gone, and there are now very few employment opportunities in this area. The old pit heads were demolished years ago and, for the main part,  the sites restored, and parts of the original railway system have been used to create the 'Five Pits Trail', a pleasant country walk past the locations of the old pits - only Holmewood Pit has anything still standing. The reclamation scheme received an award in 1970 from the Countryside Commission, in the European Conservation Year.

dot_clear.gif (43 bytes)We have an excellent small Primary School (Park House Primary), two Pubs ('The Coach House' and 'The Star Inn'), a Miners Welfare (Pilsley Miners Welfare), a General Store and Post Office (Sohal Stores), a hairdressers (Mervyns), and a car body shop / undertakers (Jack Ellis). The Miners Welfare is located on top of the hill, between Lower Pilsley and Pilsley, but according to the road signs is actually located in Lower Pilsley.
