(south end) Kiveton Park
4/104 Kiveton Park Colliery


Office buildings. Dated 1875. For the Kiveton Park Coal Company. Red brick,
Welsh slate roof. Irregular U-shaped plan, Gothic-styled details. Main elevation
facing colliery: 2:3:2:2 bays, the 2 bays on left as a tall gabled crosswing
of 2 storeys, the bays on right of 1 storey with attic. Gabled bays on left:
chamfered brick plinth, moulded sill band. Buttress between sashes with traceried,
round-arched heads with pointed hoodmoulds; corbelling beneath a v-shaped 1st-
floor bay window with 2 square-headed sashes beneath a 1/2-pyramidal roof.
Asymmetric gable with square clock turret rising on right and having glass-
faced clocks on a drum beneath a pyramidal roof with louvred gablets. Offset
lateral stack to rear of turret with rebuilt shaft. Lower bays on right, set
back: cast-iron air bricks in plinth with lettering 'Built in the year/of THE
LORD 1875'. Stone sill band links sashes; buttresses flank gabled central bays
which have traceried round-arched heads with hoodmoulds and gable oculus with
crossed glazing bars and decorative brick surround. Roof dormers above outer
bays; octagonal central lantern with swept roof; original offset end stack on
right with corbelled top. Right return: 2-bay end gable on left has inserted
pay hatches flanking a 1st-World War memorial in the form of a segmentally-
pedimented Ionic aedicule. Door on right with lower link block beyond having
front addition and tall stack set to rear. Taller, single-bay block on right
has arched-headed 4-pane sash beneath decorative brickwork and 2 slit windows
in gable, original ridge stack. Left return: canted, 2-storey, bay-window projection
under its own hipped roof. The sinking of the colliery began in 1866; these
well-detailed and well-preserved offices of 1875 are an unusual survival in
the South Yorkshire coalfield.
