    About this property

    • The 67 acre former Prince of Wales colliery which once produced 1.5 million tonnes of coal a year until 2002 when it closed plays a big part in Pontefract heritage and still means a lot to many people today. The former spoil heap next to the pit yard will become a new country park, providing new public open space for the community. Alongside nearby Pontefract Park and Pontefract Racecourse, this will provide an extremely attractive gateway into Pontefract.It also provides the engineered road corridor for the Northern link road, a central piece of infrastructure for the future growth of Pontefract which was completed in February 2015.
