Teamwork video about the Colliery and workers made about 1990 in typical NCB British Coal style. Every worker got a one at the time, how many are left. A lot of familiar faces keep popping up. Keep watching after the British Coal end there is a bit more. Worked there 1989 - 2001 then had another spell 2011 - 2012 Hope you enjoy it.

A million men used to toil beneath the ground. Coal-mining fuelled the industrial revolution and brought about the biggest industrial dispute of the last fifty years. Now Britain's last deep coal mine, Kellingley Colliery in Yorkshire, has closed.

Some footage I shot on September 11th 2009. It shows the, now closed, Hayroyds Colliery in Clayton West, UK. Shown are the office, workshop, parts of the washing plant and conveyors and machinery involved in processing the raw material extracted from underground and producing clean coal to be sent to the power station.

An investigation has been launched into the safety of a Yorkshire mine after a man was killed when a roof collapsed. A second man, trapped by the leg at Kellingly Colliery in North Yorkshire, was brought out alive. North Yorkshire Police said it will investigate the incident jointly with specialist mine inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive. Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper, who is the local MP in the area, says that workers and familes are in shock and deeply saddened. She backed a full investigation but fell short of calling for a review of safety for the small mining industry around the country. It's the second mine tragedy in a fortnight after four men died at the Gleision Colliery in the Swansea Valley in Wales. The pit's operated by UK Coal and is the largest deep mine left in the county. Emergency services were called to Kellingley Colliery, in Knottingley, North Yorkshire, around 5pm after a collapse in the 800 metre deep pit. It's not the first time that tragedy has struck at the pit. In 2009, another man died at the colliery when equipment failed. At the time, UK Coal were given Health and Safety summonses from the Health and Safety Executive in connection with four deaths in separate incidents at its collieries.

Timeshift explores the lost world of coal mining and the extraordinarily rich social and cultural lives of those who worked in what was once Britain's most important industry. It's a story told through a largely forgotten film archive that movingly documents the final years of coal's heyday from the 1940s to the 1980s. One priceless piece of footage features a ballet performance by tutu-wearing colliers. Featuring contributions from those who worked underground, those who lived in the pit villages, those who filmed them at work and at play and those - like Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall - who have been inspired by what made coalfield culture so unique. Narrated by Christopher Eccleston

Homage to Barnsley Main Colliery. Coal mining started in Barnsley during the middle ages and the 'Barnsley Seam' was the most important coal seam in South Yorkshire. Deep coal mining ceased in the UK when on 18 December 2015, miners at Kellingley worked their final shift, marking the end of Great Britain's deep coal mining industry.

For all the miners at Kellingley, for all members and officials of the N.U.M. and for my family of Yorkshire miners from my grandfather who started in Durham in 1912, moved to Wakefield in 1920 & his 3 sons who followed him down pits in West & South Yorkshire and of course for my mother, the eldest child, who had to leave school and raise them & 3 other siblings because their mother had died.. This was filmed by me from Yorkshire ITV yesterday evening at 6.00 My edit with the Tory bollocks and laughable so called 'balance' removed. This is the miner's story not that of the fucking Tories.

This is an achive film taken 1992, just as the coal mines in South Yorkshire (and elsewhere) were coming to a close. This is one of the last workings of Goldthorpe Colliery supplying coal to a power station via a class 56. This used to be the old Wakefield - Edlington line. The short scene of pit is now an housing estate, of course the coaling tower, rail track and everything else has gone. So pleased I went along to capture this footage (with thanks to Lewis Jackson), as it cannot ever be repeated.

Thoresby Coal Mine Hydrodemolition by HYDROBLAST Yorkshire. In October 2015 , UK Coal invited Hydroblast to cut 10 holes in the mineshaft wall to allow a concrete plug to be installed to block off the coal mine. Hydroblast placed its robot into the mineshaft and blasted away pockets of concrete to allow the shaft to be sealed with concrete.

Miners at Kellingley coal mine in North Yorkshire worked their last shift on Friday, marking the closure of the UK's last coal mine and an end to a once-mighty industry. Many of the miners have spent their entire working lives at the mine and don't know what they will do next. Emotions ran high among the workers, who have formed a tight bond after spending so many years together in the deep pit. On Saturday, thousands of people in nearby Knottingley marched to mark the closure of the mine. One of the miners said, “It’s like losing part of your family, like grieving." http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/-LUbRjYMBLw/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Here is a truly exciting opportunity to deliver a unique natural rock laboratory for Industry and University training and research in Carboniferous rocks, exploiting the man-made landscapes that are a legacy of opencast mining operations in Scotland. The British Geological Survey (BGS http://www.bgs.ac.uk) are working together with the Scottish Mines Restoration Trust (SMRT http://www.smrtrust.org/) to facilitate communities and other stakeholders in bringing together viable restoration plans for the former opencast coal site at Spireslack, near Muirkirk in East Ayrshire. BGS will deliver the strategic geological baseline knowledge to underpin these efforts.
