Looking For Info., Newton Lane or Newton Colliery, Possibly Wrenthorpe area of Wakefield

Sir
I’m trying to find out the whereabouts of this Pit.

A retired miner has asked me if I knew where it was, we believe it was in the Wrenthorpe area of Wakefield.

Thanks in anticipation.

Best Regards

Looking For Information, Pumping Station Early 1950's Regent Pit Shaft, Coxlodge Colliery, Gosforth

I am looking for info relating to a pumping station which was built on the site of the former Regent pit shaft attached to Coxlodge Colliery, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne in the early 1950's. The site was then being used as a coal depot for coal from the Havanah and Hazlerigg pits. Two pumps said to be the largest in the UK (possibly the world) were installed.

 Any information would be appreciated.

St Johns Ambulance Accident Club 1874, Tibshelf Colliery, Derbyshire
Hello

I am currently researching St John’s Ambulances involvement with Tibshelf Colliery and believe that the women’s branch were one of the first to set up an Accident Club in 1874.

I would be very grateful if you have any information either about Tibshelf or St John’s involvement that you could share with me?

Regards
Amanda

Any Information, Welsh Drift Mine, 1930s, Glynneath Area ‘Come Here To Die’
Keep up the good work my friend you are doing a wonderful job mind you I am having a devil of a job tracing a drift mine of the 1930s called ‘Come Here To Die’ apparently life expectancy working in this drift was only 6 months maximum.

It was sunk in a little village in West Wales approx 5 miles from me called Glynneath the correct name of the drift was ‘Come Here To Die’ but in Welsh apparently it was 'water and methane gas’ the coal extracted was pure anthracite so if something comes to your attention, reference this drift, I would appreciate it my friend if you would enlighten me.

Thanks my friend
All the best to you and family.
