Looking for Pictures of Bennerley Coal Screening Plant

Hello There!

This is probably long shot, but hopefully not a dead end.... we are looking for a photo of the Bennerley Coal Screening Plant. Me and my Hubby often go on walks at the crack of dawn - catching nature at its best, we have stumbled across allsorts from Kingfishers to Monk-Jack deer (and the odd drunk!) And we were trying to picture what it looked like where the plan used to stand, now it is a haven for wildlife, taking advantage of its uninhabited wildness.

After searching every possible angle (to us) we cannot find any images of this plant - could you help us out or indeed

You could try the site:-
Images from Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border

steerus in the right direction on how we could obtain images and/or information of dates it operated etc.(We are fast becoming, in our own heads, local historians, and we have some interesting images and documentation on the opening of Stanton Iron Works and early copies of the 'Tizer)

Thank You for reading this email

Kindest Regards
Donna Hancox

Re: Bennerley Photos Above

Hi Fionn
Have you got the additional pictures that Rich Bull mentioned in his email?  I would be interested in seeing them, also any higher res ones of the ones on your site.

I am a member of the Awsworth & Cossall History Society and as such I have developed an interest in the Bennerley site. 
Would you mind if I used print offs of your Bennerley pictures as part of our display at our village fete this year?
