Just found your site whilst researching some information on the Manvers Main complex in South Yorkshire.
I’m looking for some old pictures of Manvers Main and have found some on your website. I wondered if it would be possible for me to reproduce these photographs for my employer’s intranet site?
The reason I would like to use them, is that I work at The Pension Service based in Dearne Valley, in a building built on the site of the old colliery! We are developing our intranet site and would like to include a section on the history of the area. The picture would be used to show what Manvers used to look like, compared to today’s modern business unit in which we work. I also intend to provide some background information about the mining industry. In fact my husband, who used to work at Wath Main Colliery, says our office is built very near to Manvers Number 1 shaft where the men used to descend and ascend into and from the pit!
The pictures would be able to be viewed by any Civil Servant in the country (I work for the Department for Work and Pensions), but not by the general public. Thank you for your help in this matter
