Elms Colliery, Nailsea - North Somerset (UA)

Known locally as Middle Engine Pit, this is one of the most complete examples of an early C19 colliery in England. However the surviving structures are in a poor and vulnerable condition. Since 2015 Historic England has been working with the owners and other stakeholders to help improve its condition, and have grant-aided repairs to the boundary wall and the consolidation of some of the remaining standing structures.
