Robin Hood Colliery.
Looking south from Sharp Lane in Robin Hood, Wakefield. I believe part of Robin Hood Colliery's surface facilities were once located in this field.

The Robin Hood Colliery or Collieries had operations in several places in the village of Robin Hood. The facilities at the location indicated on the Google Map included an engine house, cf. the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1854, which is the first record of this place-name.[1] The 1905 map only indicates an "Air Shaft" at the location. In 1938 a small residential area named Sherwood Green was under construction at this site.
