Kippax Colliery
Undated. View shows Kippax Colliery, which was situated by Owl Wood, between Kippax and Allerton Bywater. The shafts were sunk in 1858 by Joseph Locke & Co to mine the Haigh Moor seam under Kippax Park. Coal was initially carried south on a tramway over the road, to Kippax Coal Staithe on the Aire & Calder Navigation. From 1878 the colliery linked in to the Leeds, Castleford & Ponterfract branch of the North Eastern railway, to carry the coal out. The are over Kippax Park was opencast mined from 1953 to 1962.
