TitleHickleton Main Colliery Company Limited
AdminHistoryHickleton Colliery was situated at Thurnscoe, Rotherham.

The pit was sunk during the strike of 1893 by the owners, Eaton and Walker, and reached to the Barnsley seam in 1894.

Hickleton Main Colliery Company Limited was formed during the 1890s.

In 1911 the colliery broke the world record for raising the greatest tonnage of coal.

In 1921 one of the original shafts was deepened and a new shaft sunk to the Parkgate seam. By 1945, the Barnsley, Barnsley Deep, Low Main and Parkgate seams were being worked.

Hickleton Main Colliery Company Limited later became part of Doncaster Amalgamated Collieries Limited. The company worked the colliery until nationalisation in 1947.

Hickleton Colliery closed in 1986.
