About South Elmsall

South Elmsall is a town in the metropolitan borough of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England. It is located approximately 17 miles (27 kilometers) south-east of Leeds and about 23 miles (37 kilometers) north-east of Sheffield. The town is part of the larger area known as the Five Towns, which also includes Castleford, Pontefract, Featherstone, and Knottingley.

South Elmsall has a history rooted in coal mining and has undergone significant changes over the years, adapting to the decline of the mining industry. Today, it is a residential town with various amenities and services to serve the local community. The town is well-connected by road and has a railway station that provides transportation links to nearby cities.

Frickley Colliery, often referred to as Frickley Pit, was a coal mine located near the village of South Elmsall in West Yorkshire, England. The colliery played a significant role in the local economy and community, as it was a major employer and a key part of the coal mining industry in the area.

Coal mining at Frickley Colliery began in the late 19th century, and it continued for many decades. The mine underwent various changes and modernizations over the years, adapting to shifts in technology and industry practices. However, like many coal mines in the United Kingdom, Frickley Colliery faced challenges in the latter half of the 20th century due to the decline of the coal industry.

Frickley Colliery eventually closed in the 1990s as part of the broader trend of coal mine closures in the UK. The closure had significant economic and social impacts on the local community, as many residents were employed in the mining industry. Since the closure, efforts have been made to regenerate and diversify the local economy, but the legacy of the mining era remains an important part of the area's history.
