Abandoned Coal Mine Drone Stock Footage Download

This is new stock drone footage of the Snowdown abandoned coal mine in Kent.  If you are looking for stock videos of derelict or abandoned places, then this aerial footage of British a coal mine would be ideal.


This British coal mine was shut down in 1987 under the Thatcher regime. It is situated in a small Kent village of Snowdown near Aylesham.  In this Pond5 collection of drone shots there are some good examples of reveal shots.  Climbing from behind a tree line, the drone is piloted over the top to reveal the mine in a crane type camera shot.

There are also plenty of dolly forward, dolly back and tracking shots that make this collection of videos of Snowdown Colliery very appealing to anybody creating videos about climate change and how British coal mining declined during the 1980’s

These 4K aerial drone shots of a closed coal mine are taken using a DJI Mini 2.  The date of the flight was October 13th, 2021.

Collection of Aerial Photos of Snowdown Colliery for Sale

The collection of photos of the Snowdown Colliery mine were the first set of photos that I added to my Drones Deep Aerial photography Etsy shop.  They were taken using a DJI Mini 2 drone.

The Snowdown colliery was closed down during the Thatcher years of the 1980’s and has been left to ruin ever since.  This location is a fantastic place to take photos of old abandoned places.  With the building being taken over by nature, there is an apocalyptic feel to this derelict location.

The Abandoned Mine Build Photo Print 01 is a birds eye view.  Looking straight down, you can see just how much nature has progressed through the site.  I really like the way the purples and greens standout in this aerial photo.  There are a further three other aerial photographs of the Snowdown colliery available to view and buy at Drones Deep Etsy Page.

I am currently in the process of editing the photo descriptions for all my aerial photos that are for sale.  There are currently 27 aerial photos for sale and I will be adding many more over the next few months.
