Treeton Colliery was a coal mine situated in the village of Treeton, near Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England.

Work on the sinking of Treeton Colliery commenced, with all due ceremony, in October 1875. Trade, at the time, was in a poor state and the company were short of capital so work was suspended three years later not being resumed until March, 1882.

The colliery was owned by the Rother Vale Colliery Co Ltd which was founded in the same year, bringing together the new workings with collieries at Fence and Orgreave. This became part of the United Steel Companies Ltd following the end of World War I.[1]
