The Bevercotes Mine near Retford in Nottinghamshire is a working experiment which will eventually lead to a completely automated pit, controlled by a computer. When it begins production later this year, it will be the world's first automatic coalmine.

Made of Steel
Made of Steel is a Heritage Lottery funded project which is managed and co-funded by Colour Your Life at Leisureworks. This is a creative heritage project capturing the memories, stories and archives around Consett Steelworks and the surrounding community then and now. Consett steelworks dominated Consett, County Durham for 140 years from 1864 when Consett Iron Company was established. The Steelworks was closed down in October 1980 and devastated the community. Having no permanent museum, the stories and memories of the people that worked at the Steelworks, their families and wider community are the only legacy of an industry that affected thousands of lives. Made of Steel is one of the last chances to chronicle first hand experiences and remember past generations and celebrate the historical importance of the area and its people, particularly for younger generations. This project will work with a film-maker/photographer Andrew Hagan and creative writer Tom Kelly to creatively capture community tales which will culminate in a film with soundtrack; a performance of poems, songs, drama and other spoken words; digital scrap book; an exhibition; educational resource accompanied by many other creative products to capture the unique and rich archives. This project will run from November to late Spring 2013, where a number of reminiscence workshops, public community digitising and archiving opportunities will be available. Many thanks to Brian Harrison, Tony Welsh and Joe Toner for allowing us to use some of their personal photographs in this film.
City of Durham in pictures
A photo walk around the City of Durham in North East England. Featuring views of Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral from the River Wear. The Cathedral and Castle are a combined UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Castle is now used by Durham University. The name "Durham" comes from the Celtic element "dun", signifying a hill fort, and the Old Norse "holme", which translates to island The historical city centre of Durham has changed little over the past 200 years. It is made up of the peninsula containing the cathedral, palace green, former administrative buildings for the palatine and Durham Castle. This was a strategic defensive decision by the city's founders and gives the cathedral a striking position.

Pit Village and Colliery a Bit of Old England
Our Travelling is The Learning and Our Learning is The Understaning. Please help my channel with a Donation to help me travel and take you to other areas around England Please click link to Donate ! https://www.paypal.me/abeer4Thomas/25 https://www.facebook.com/thomas.agnew.50 https://twitter.com/THOMASAGNEW19 The Mahogony Drift Mine is original to Beamish, having opened in 1855 and after closing, was brought back into use in 1921 to transport coal from Beamish Park Drift to Beamish Cophill Colliery. It opened as a museum display in 1979. Included in the display is the winding engine and a short section of trackway used to transport tubs of coal to the surface, and a mine office. Visitor access into the mine shaft is by guided tour.The colliery features both a standard gauge and narrow gauge railway - the former representing how coal was transported to its onward destination, and the latter typically used by Edwardian collieries for internal purposes. The standard gauge railway is laid out to serve the deep mine - wagons being loaded by dropping coal from the heapstead - and runs out of the yard to sidings laid out along the northern edge of the Pit Village. On the standard gauge railway there are two engine sheds in the colliery yard, the smaller brick, wood and metal structure being an operational building, the larger brick built structure being presented as Beamish Engine Works, a reconstruction of an engine shed formerly at Beamish 2nd Pit. Used for locomotive and stock storage, it is a long, single track shed featuring a servicing pit for part of its length, visitors can walk along the full length in a segregated corridor. A third engine shed has been constructed at the southern end of the yard (i.e. the other side of the heapstead to the other two sheds), also in brick (lower half) and corrugated iron, and is used for both narrow and standard gauge vehicles (on one road), although it is not connected to either system - instead being fed by low-loaders and used for long term storage only. The narrow gauge railway is serviced by a corrugate iron engine shed, and is being expanded to eventually encompass several sidings. There are a number of industrial steam locomotives (including rare examples by Stephen Lewin, from Seaham, and Black, Hawthorn & Co), and many chaldron wagons (the region’s traditional type of colliery railway rolling stock, and which became a symbol of Beamish Museum). The locomotive Coffee Pot No 1 is often in steam during the summer.Alongside the colliery is the pit village, representing life in the mining communities that grew alongside coal production sites in the North East, many having come into existence solely because of the industry, such as Seaham Harbour, West Hartlepool, Esh Winning and Bedlington.Miner's Cottages The row of six miner's cottages in Francis Street represent the tied housing provided by colliery owners to mine workers. Relocated to the museum in 1976, they were originally built in the 1860s in Hetton-le-Hole by Hetton Coal Company. They feature the common layout of a single-storey with a kitchen to the rear, the main room the house, and parlour to the front, rarely used (although it was common for both rooms to be used for sleeping, with disguised folding "dess" beds common), and with children sleeping in attic spaces upstairs. In front are long gardens, used for food production, with associated sheds. An outdoor toilet and coal bunker were in the rear yards, and beyond the cobbled back lane to their rear are assorted sheds used for cultivation, repairs and hobbies. Chalkboard slates attached to the rear wall were used by the occupier to tell the mine's "knocker up" when they wished to be woken for their next shift. No.2 is presented as a Methodist family's home, featuring good quality "Pitman's mahogany" furniture; No.3 is presented as occupied by a second generation well off Irish Catholic immigrant family featuring many items of value (so they could be readily sold off in times of need) and an early 1990s range; No.3 is presented as more impoverished than the others with just a simple convector style Newcastle oven, being inhabited by a miner's widow allowed to remain as her son is also a miner, and supplementing her income doing laundry and making/mending for other families. All the cottages feature examples of the folk art objects typical of mining communities. Also included in the row is an office for the miner's paymaster. In the rear alleyway of the cottages is a communal bread oven, which were commonplace until miner's cottages gradually obtained their own kitchen ranges. They were used to bake traditional breads such as the Stottie, as well as sweet items, such as tea cakes. With no extant examples, the museum's oven had to be created from photographs and oral history.School[edit] The school opened in 1992, and represents the typical board school. in the educational system of the era .
Garden Village
Singer/songwriter Ali Bullivent was commissioned by the National Coal Mining Museum for England to write a new musical piece in order to highlight their archives. This formed part of the Wakefield Literature Festival 2016. The resulting lyrical song cycle is inspired by a short story by Sid Chaplin, 'The Thin Seam' (1950), which follows the life of a miner from Durham who chooses to return to working in the pit rather than continue his scholarship education and risk becoming alienated from his community. 'The Thin Seam' was performed at the Unitarian Chapel in Wakefield where Ali was joined by fellow musicians Jonathan Dore, Jane Muller and Paula Ryan. The recording was produced by Jamie Vizard and the videos by Fly Girl Films. This piece of music is called 'Garden Village'.

Hampering the efforts of rescuers, fire breaks out in the mine making it impossible to recover the bodies of four of those killed in the blast. Cement and timber is taken below to seal the fire off and experts consider it may be many months before the section can be re-entered.

Down The Pit, Nottinghamshire's coal mines (By Victoria Knight).  Read Description-Important.
IMPORTANT: SO the audio for the scene outside my great-grandad's house has messed up and isn't playable on THE YOUTUBE APP for some reason, but can be played properly on a laptop or desktop site on mobile. Apologies, Premiere Pro is being a twat right now. This is a short documentary I made for my Final Major Project for college. Looking at the history of coal mining in areas such as Newstead and Pleasley. DISCLAIMER: Pleasley is in Derbyshire, but it was the most convenient and interesting country park and mining museum I could visit, as others such as Bestwood Country Park where only open on weekends at inconvenient times. Sorry to mislead. Also looking at the lives of miners, Thatcher's government and the miners strike of 1984-5 with mining unions. This was only 5 minutes long and wasn't as informative as I'd like but I will be making a 10 minute version of this documentary with more footage that I'd filmed. Also excuse how gross I look at the start of this documentary XD. Before all the technical stuff, first I want to give a massive thanks to Pleasley Pit Trust for the amazing work they've done protecting and ensuring the care and preservation of the colliery for everyone to enjoy. I'd definitely recommend visiting Pleasley Pit and hope they can continue their amazing work. Another massive thanks to Paul Dinsdale for letting me interview him and for being in my documentary! I'll be seeing you at the colliery!

The Frontier Historical Society, Inc. was created in 1964 to preserve the pieces of Glenwood Springs' past. A small museum was opened at that time, continued to grow and in 1972 a larger museum was opened in its present location at 1001 Colorado Avenue in Glenwood Springs. Our mission statement is simple: Serving as the Living Legacy of our Local Life. Our purpose is to collect and preserve artifacts and materials relating to the history of Glenwood Springs and Garfield county, Colorado. We make these materials available for research and interpret them through temporary and permanent exhibits at the museum, off-site exhibits, publications and educational programs. The Society cooperates with other individuals and organizations to accomplish these goals. Museum Hours: May through September, Monday - Saturday 10:00 - 4:00.
