TitleNew Monckton Collieries Limited (New Monckton Colliery)
AdminHistoryMonckton Colliery was located seven miles north east of Barnsley, and one mile east of Royston railway station. The Monckton Main Coal Company Limited was registered on 16 Sep 1874. The first sod was cut by Lord Galway, Chairman of the company, in 1875. Two pits were initally sunk to the Barnsley seam.

In 1901 the company was restructured; the Monckton Coal Company Limited was wound up and a new company was formed called the New Monckton Collieries Limited which took over the business and assets (Monckton Main and Hodroyd Collieries, 180 beehive coke ovens, a by-product plant and a brickyard). In 1920 the coke ovens and by-product plant at the colliery were transferred to the Monckton Coke and Chemical Company Limited. In 1924 the board passed a resolution to proceed with a sinking near Notton Grange Farm. No.5 shaft was sunk between 1927 and 1928. Monckton Collieries were taken over by the National Coal Board in 1947.
