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.

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.

Plans to develop a deep coal mine, creating hundreds of new jobs, have sparked controversy. Cumbria County Council has granted planning approval to West Cumbria Mining (WCM) for a new pit near Whitehaven, to be known as Woodhouse Colliery. It will be the first deep mine to open in the UK for more than 30 years. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/

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.

The mood is far from festive in a tinsel-festooned miners' social club near the UK's last remaining deep-coal pit. The closure of Kellingley Colliery on Friday will sound the death knell foAnd while most are resigned to their fate, the thought of an uncertain future and a life without the pit is enough to bring even the most hardened of miners close to tears. Speaking at the Kellingley and Knottingley Miners' Welfare Scheme Social Club, in West Yorkshire, Keith Poulson said the miners have been anticipating the closure since it was announced two years ago. The branch secretary for Kellingley NUM said: "It has been like being a convicted prisoner on death row.

© P.Wormstone 1987 Feel free to view and share this work but any copying or use for financial gain is strictly prohibited without consent. I worked at Wheldale from 1980 to 88, I started as an apprentice Electrician in Sept 80 and became the last Electrician at the mine as I volunteered to stay and oversee demolition during 87/88. Wheldale Colliery was situated on Wheldon Rd in Castleford, just a bit further up the road than the Cas Tigers ground. The shafts were sunk in 1868 and the pit was owned by the Airedale Collieries Company (including Allerton Bywater and Fryston). It was originally nicknamed the Doctors' Pit; as a Doctor Holt was one of the original business partners. In 1948 Wheldale had the longest single conveyor belt in the world at a length of 1 mile long, installed by Sutcliffe mine engineers based at Universal Works, Horbury, Wakefield. Wheldale was the last mine in Yorkshire to use pit ponies, they eventually came out of the mine at the start of the 1972 strike. Wheldale was also the last mine to operate a steam locomotive, during 1981/82. The mine was eventually closed by 'Thatcher' in Oct 1987 a very sad day for all of us that worked there. Part 1 Includes the car park, Time office, Baths and lamp room. I filmed this movie on a shoulder mounted, VHS video camera which was very heavy so apologies for the dodgy camera work. Apologies also for the poor film quality and the odd 'pit language', also ignore the dates on the film, most of them are wrong.

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.

In 2008 this superb model railway layout was opened in the city of Oberhausen, located directly in the heart of Germany’s coal and steel industry, the so-called Ruhr area. Then, this permanent model railway exhibition represented cities, landscapes, steelworks, coal mines and the rail transport in the 1970‘s. The model railroad layout was constructed in HO scale or H0 gauge and covered an area of more than 420 square meters. Due to financial problems, this model railroad exhibit was closed two years after the opening. Fortunately in September 2012, this large model railway layout was sold to a new owner, who re-installed the whole layout and made it accessible to visitors again. Today, this fine layout is a part of the railway museum, called „Modellbahnwelt Odenwald“, located near Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The miniature world was built according to original track plans, stations and landscapes, for example, the Oberhausen central station, the port of Dortmund, the blast furnace plant of Oberhausen, colliery and coking plants. On the layout, there are many replicas of well-known buildings in the Ruhr area. Furthermore, a special highlight is the photorealistic background system of the model landscape. The model railroad was designed as a two-wire digital system, which is used by model trains of Fleischmann, Roco and from many other manufacturers, except Märklin. Locomotives, light effects and trains are managed by the digital model railway control system „TrainController“. Enjoy Pilentum’s train journey of at least 80 minutes on a several kilometers long track system.
