Newstead Colliery Village[edit]

The colliery village was built at Newstead in the late-19th century for miners at Newstead and Annesley Collieries.[4] Newstead Colliery operated between 1874 and 1987.

The former mining location has now been redeveloped into a nature reserve and business park. Hazelford Way Industrial Estate is home to several large companies including Bunches Florapost; Badgemaster; and Leivers and Millership.
