Sea coal

  • Description

    "Gravel sized and smaller washed into a hollow in the rocks. Ellington Colliery closed on 26 January 2005. It was the last deep mine in the UK to extract coal from right under the sea, below here. The mine was only a couple of kilometres away from this site." Photo by Russel Wills, 2014.
