Colliery electrical and mechanical fitting shop. Circa 1940 with subsequent alteration to mining car repair shop.

Steel framing, with single-skin infill panels, the framework expressed externally as a rectangular grid pattern. Metal truss roof system with corrugated sheet roof covering incorporating continuous glazed areas and 5 ridge ventilation cowls.

Linear plan comprised of 3 linked parallel ranges with two ranges longer and taller than the rear range. North elevation of 17 bays with windows at two levels in the lower part of the side wall, the upper part being without openings. Gable ends without doorways, that to the rear of the shorter range, serve rail access to the building.

The Chatterley Whitfield Colliery was in the forefront of mine electrification in the early decades of the C20, and was the first British colliery to produce in excess of a million tons of coal per annum.

The electrical and mechanical fitting shop is of special interest for its key role in the mechanised transport system serving the colliery.
