Hi just a note to let you know I enjoyed your web site.
I work for British Coal from 1980/1993. I worked at Blackwell workshops till 1985, they shut it down after the 1984 strike and then I moved to Warsop Main, they shut that in 1989. My last pit was Bolsover Colliery, which shut in 1993.
I now live in my home town of Rochdale Lancashire, but still miss working in the coal fields.
