Calverton Colliery - First Sod cut 1937 Final Demo 28th March 2000

Hi Fionn
We have recently had a plaque mounted commemorating the 17 miners who lost their lives in it's relatively short life. Calverton was formally opened as a colliery by Lord Leathers in 1952.

Three plaques in total depicted names of former miners who contributed towards the fund and their particular job at the colliery. The other two name the sponsors and the centre one the fatalities.
