Undated. Image shows Woodside Farm, Lofthouse Gate, with colliery spoil behind. The buildings are thought to have been off Lingwell Nook Lane, which ran alongside the spoil heaps, known locally as 'The Alps'. The aerial cable can be seen running along the top ridge of the spoil. The farm occupier, a Mr Holmes, was relocated to new buildings on Castle Head Lane, at the west end of Lingwell Nook Lane. The spoil heaps were removed during construction of the M1 motorway in the late 1960s.
