This disposal point could be found on the outskirts of Essington and had being used to process coal from the Sneyd and Essington opencast mines.The disposal point had sat idle for many years when plans were put forward to make use of the site once again to process coal from the then very busy opencast site at Reedswood.There was locals were against the scheme due to the expected increase in traffic.
So in the summer of 1995 the disposal point was dismantled for export.The other buildings,rail sidings,hardstandings and access roads were removed and the site is now used by sheep for grazing.
