AdminHistoryIn Sep 1870, Joshua Willey leased 350 acres of the Woodmoor and Winter seams at Carlton under Lord Wharncliffe's estate. Willey sank two shafts, reaching the Woodmoor seam in Nov 1871. Soon after, the colliery was sold and in 1873 a new colliery company, the Wharncliffe Woodmoor Coal Company was formed. In Nov 1876 the colliery was put up for sale. The colliery was bought by Howard Allport in 1881. In 1883 Allport adopted limited liability and the company became the Wharncliffe Woodmoor Colliery Company Limited.
