State Mine Heritage Park, Lithgow

State Mine Heritage Park, Lithgow

Our next port of call is the Lithgow State Mine underground colliery, now derelict, which operated until the mid 1960s. Attractive industrial buildings of yesteryear are now operated as a museum to showcase the history of the Western Coalfields.

This was another photographic treat so you are going to get quite a few more days on this one.

  1. I already like the look of that building in the background. I have no idea all these things are out there. Blogs are such wonderful things.

  3. I have just spent some time going through the last few posts... not that it was ever bad but something changed with your photographs... seem a little more "introspective" of late. Really enjoy them!

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
