Pond in Silverhill Wood
Pond in Silverhill Wood
The photograph shows one of two ponds in this area of the Forestry Commission’s Silverhill Wood. The ponds were created when the area was landscaped after the closure of Teversal Colliery. The viewpoint is directly behind SK4761 : The eastern end of the Silverhill Trail.

The colliery itself lay largely to the right of this picture in what is now woodland. A brick works associated with the colliery was situated just beyond the far edge of this pond.

Behind the viewpoint and along the right-hand edge of the pond were sidings connecting the colliery with the Midland Railway’s Tibshelf and Pleasley branch line.

Coming from the left and crossing the nearer half of the pond were sidings and a connection from the colliery to a Great North Railway branch line. Immediately beyond those was an SK4761 : Access road to Teversal Colliery and brick works.

The water from these ponds drains to the south, and then eventually into the River Meden.
