Now that the Number 2 winding tower at Kellingley Colliery has been demolished today can someone please give me any details of the demolition of Thoresby and has the clearance of the site been completed yet?

Also have any of the structures at Snibston Colliery been demolished after the closure of the Discovery Museum?

And last of all what is the current situation at Eckington Drift Mine is it still working and where does the coal go?

I’d be interested to know more about the strike in Notts. Was it about democracy or saving jobs.

I’ve got some good information from Jimmy Hood and Eric Eaton.

I’m interested in the following collieries, Ollerton, Bildthorpe and Bevercotes

Hi Fionn,

I am researching my family history and have a story / family member relating to Gedling Colliery, Nottingham.

My Great Grandfather was a Charles Smith and was injured at Gedling around the 1910's/20's. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction as to where I could find records of employment, etc.... He has long since passed away - his estimated date of Birth being 1880. Being a Smith he is proving very difficult to trace through the Census, etc...
