Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole
Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole - Petition to sign https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/keep-cumbrian-coal-in-the-hole-its-too-near-sellafield The first deep coal mine in the UK for 30 years ? A new company West Cumbria Mining are being financed by China to the tune of £millions. On January 24th 2018 in Kendal, Cumbria County Council will be making a decision on the first deep coal mine in the UK in 30 years Please write and object – the more objections from the public and from groups there are the better chance we have of stopping new mining activity in close proximity to Sellafield The more letters of objection to Cumbria County Council the better ! Email: [email protected]] For the Attention of: Mrs Rachel Brophy – Case Officer Cumbria County Council Dear Mrs Brophy PLANNING APPLICATION: 4/17/9007 West Cumbria Mining I am writing to strongly oppose the plan to open a new coking (metallurgical) coal mine off St Bees in West Cumbria. Keep Fossil Fuel in the Ground - Cumbria County Council is signed up to climate agreements, which this plan would make a nonsense of. Close to Sellafield - Coal extraction is known to be a cause of man made earthquakes, this site is very close to Sellafield, much closer than any previous coal mining and these coal deposits are dangerously methane rich. Destruction of Wildlife Habitat -The RSPB, Natural England and others have pointed out that this plan would have the potential to impact dangerously on the fragile St Bees habitats and the wider Irish Sea. Yours sincerely ……………………………. For more information please see : https://keepcumbriancoalinthehole.wordpress.com/

"Whitehaven. Again 'King Coal' takes Toll. 28 miners lose their lives in terrible explosion two miles under sea from the shaft of the Haig Pit." Whitehaven, Cumbria. Shots of miners gathered outside colliery building. Members of the Salvation Army and St. John's Ambulance are also there. A body is carried along on a stretcher by miners. Two policemen salute as the corpse passes. Another body is carried into a building. (The voiceover explains that the disaster in coal mine took place in a seam cut out under the sea. As well as an explosion there was a problem with gas.)

Astley Green Colliery Winding Room_Steam Engine_Lancashire Coal Mine near Leigh
If you are ever going up the A580 East Lancashire Road near Leigh, call in at Astley Green Colliery Museum. It's a wonderful piece of history and a superb museum, as visited by the late Fred Dibnah. The pit head gear is one of few remaining in the UK and in urgent need of restoration. It would also be nice to see this steam engine working again one day. Any donations would be gratefully received by the museum. Astley Green Colliery Museum Higher Green Lane Astley Green Tyldesley Manchester Greater Manchester M29 7JB

Places to see in ( Wigan - UK )
Places to see in ( Wigan - UK ) Wigan is a town in Greater Manchester, England. It stands on the River Douglas, 7.9 miles south-west of Bolton, 10 miles north of Warrington and 16 miles west-northwest of Manchester. Wigan is the largest settlement in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan and is its administrative centre. During the Industrial Revolution Wigan experienced dramatic economic expansion and a rapid rise in the population. Although porcelain manufacture and clock making had been major industries in the town, Wigan subsequently became known as a major mill town and coal mining district. The first coal mine was established at Wigan in 1450 and at its peak there were 1,000 pit shafts within 5 miles (8 km) of the town centre. Mining was so extensive that one town councillor remarked that "a coal mine in the backyard was not uncommon in Wigan". Coal mining ceased during the latter part of the 20th century. Wigan Pier, a wharf on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, was made famous by the writer George Orwell. In his book, The Road to Wigan Pier, Orwell highlighted the poor working and living conditions of the local inhabitants during the 1930s. Following the decline of industrial activities in the region, Wigan Pier's collection of warehouses and wharfs became a local heritage centre and cultural quarter. The DW Stadium is home to both Wigan Athletic Football Club and Wigan Warriors Rugby League Football Club, both teams being highly successful in their sports with the former being the 2013 FA Cup winners and the latter being the most successful Rugby League side of all time. Wigan lies on the meeting point of two primary A roads, the A49 and A577 which link to the M6, M61 motorway and M58 motorway. Wigan is on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and is epitomised by Wigan Pier. There is also a branch of the canal from Wigan to Leigh, with a connection to the Bridgewater Canal linking Wigan to Manchester. Wigan's long history is reflected in its 216 listed buildings, of which are 20 Grade II*. As well as being a Grade II* listed structure, Mab's Cross is the only Scheduled Monument in the town out of 12 in the borough. It is a medieval stone cross that probably dates from the 13th century. There is a legend surrounding the cross that Lady Mabel Bradshaw, wife of Sir William Bradshaw, did penance by walking from her home, Haigh Hall, to the cross once a week barefoot for committing bigamy. There is no evidence the legend is true, as there is no record that Lady Mabel was married to anyone other than Sir William Bradshaw, and several facets of the story are incorrect. Haigh Hall was built in 1827–1840 on the site of a medieval manor house of the same name, which was demolished in 1820. The hall is surrounded by a 250-acre (1.0 km2) country park, featuring areas of woodland and parkland. The former town hall is a Grade II listed building. The Museum of Wigan Life (formerly Wigan Central Library) opened in 1878. A one-year restoration programme began in 2009 costing £1.9 million. George Orwell used it to research The Road to Wigan Pier. Today, the Wigan Pier Quarter is at the heart of a 10-year regeneration programme that began in 2006 to revitalise the area. Part of Wigan's industrial heritage, Trencherfield Mill was built in 1907 and is a Grade II listed building. It houses a steam engine over 100 years old which was restored with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The quarter is also home to the Wigan Pier Theatre Company, which was founded in 1986. The Face of Wigan, located in the town centre since 2008, is a stainless steel sculpture of a face. Created by sculptor Rick Kirby, The Face stands 5.5 m (18 ft) tall and cost £80,000. ( Wigan - UK ) is well know as a tourist destination because of the variety of places you can enjoy while you are visiting the city of Wigan .

Black Diamonds 4
Black Diamonds was a film made in 1932 by Charles Hammer and, from its introduction, was inspired by the Cadeby Main Colliery Disaster in 1912 in which a total of 91 people lost their lives. Although the storyline and acting is a little naive, the Film provides a fascinating insight in the life of miners and the conditions they worked and lived in. And at the time 750,000 men were employed in the industry. The Film is 54 minutes long and is split into 5 parts; Black Diamonds 1 etc. Please enjoy

Steam winding engine – soundscape
The sound of steam winding engine in operation, recorded in the Queen Louise Adit, department of the Coal Mining Museum in Zabrze (Poland). The recorded engine was constructed in 1915 in Prinz Rudolf Hütte plant in Dülmen (Germany). The 2000-horsepower engine was used to power the shaft hoist transporting the extracted material, people and equipment – it enabled moving pit cages down with the speed of 10 m/s and at steam pressure of 12 – 8 atm.

Kelton Fell No13
Some old camera footage of a shunt taking place with Kelton Fell rarely seen out of the museum at the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway . SRPS Core Collection, acquired 1968, on display in Museum Hall 1. Light green livery. Built 1876, Neilson & Co., Hyde Park Works, Springburn, Glasgow. Works No.2203. Cost when new £1,263 10s 0d. National Coal Board Area 3 (Central West) No.13. This standard Neilson design was well suited for tightly curved track and the limited clearances which were a feature of Scottish industries and harbours. No.13 shows the original Neilson arrangement, with double slide bars and a distinctive (and inadequate) cab supported on four straight wrought iron pillars. In the same year, 1876, Neilsons sold another four locomotives of this design to the Caledonian Railway, who found them so useful that between 1885 and 1908 they built 34 more, to an almost unchanged design. The North British Railway did the same - they bought two locomotives from Neilson in 1882, and by 1899 they had built 36 for themselves at Cowlairs Works. This locomotive was delivered new to the Scottish iron masters William Baird & Co., of Gartsherrie Ironworks, as the working engine on the Rowrah & Kelton Fell Railway which connected Baird's hematite mines at Knockmurton and Kelton Fell in Cumberland with the main railway system. When the ore was worked out in 1914 Kelton Fell was transferred to Baird's Scottish coalmines, where it lost its name and was numbered 13. Working in the Twechar area, ownership passed to the National Coal Board in 1947, and the locomotive then worked at Auchengeich, Cardowan, Blantyre and Canderigg Collieries before finishing its working life at Gartshore 9/11 pits in March 1968. No.13 was donated by the National Coal Board. The restoration undertaken by SRPS at Falkirk restored lining and details in accordance with the arrangement shown by the builder's works photograph, but as this is a black and white negative, there is no knowledge of the original colour. A mechanical lubricator, vacuum brake and cab seats were fitted at that time, luxuries not required by Baird's or by the NCB. The dumb buffers fitted at some point by Bairds were replaced by NBR spring buffers (similar to the originals) recovered from J36 Class locomotives 65288

Barony  A Frame from the air. (P3A)
A quick video of the Barony A Frame I took with my DJI Phantom 3 before it started snowing. I was hoping to get a lot more footage the weather put a stop to that. The Barony A Frame is a preserved headgear in East Ayrshire, Scotland, located 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) west of Auchinleck. It was built in 1954 as part of the modernisation of the Barony Colliery, which had been opened in 1907.[1] The colliery closed in 1989, and in 1990 the winding engine houses, generating station and water-treatment works, as well as the A frame, were given listed building status, as category B listed structures.[2][3] It is the last remaining example of its type in Britain, and was restored in 2007 by the Barony A Frame Trust. Over £1 million was spent refurbishing the structure, including funding from Historic Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund. The A-frame was reopened by Prince Charles, the Duke of Rothesay in January 2008.[1][2]
