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/

Dropping an iPhone X Down 4000 FT Deep Hole! - What's In There?
So I dropped the new iPhone X down a 4000+ ft. deep mine hole and recorded it all to see what happens. So here's how my experiment went down. The fishing line I bought was 1329 yards (3987 ft.) When the line ran out I was pretty disappointed thinking it's just dangling but the iPhone footage shows it seems to have hit something. I assume the line just kept unraveling despite the phone landing, unless it just landed on a ledge or something and actually was 4000 feet deep? Hard to tell but after the initial 2-3 second drag delay, the iPhone was going down pretty fast and for like a good three minutes.

Teachers TV: The Big Pit
The Big Pit mining museum in Blaenafon, Wales is one of only 3 deep mines in Europe open to the public. The museum offers school groups the chance to descend down the original shaft alongside real ex-miners to find out first hand what working life was like for the generations of men who worked at the coal face. In this programme you can find out how Pupils from City Academy Bristol prepared for the visit the museum as part of their Key Stage 3 History project. In addition to industrial history, the trip has cross-curricular links allowing students to enhance their knowledge of geography, science and citizenship. Back on the surface, the pupils visit the interactive multi-media mining galleries which tell the story of how the coal was won and give details about the lives of those involved in the coal industry in the Pithead Baths Exhibitions.

The Last Coal Mine in Durham UK
5:35 - Going into the mine If you are around Durham or Newcastle I would HIGHLY recommend coming to visit Beamish Coal Mining village. It's a village that used to be thriving in 1913 and they set up the whole village with volunteers who dress and show you what life was like for people who worked in the "Pits" and their families. They have a few quaint little shops, a cable car that takes you around the whole village, a cute farm, old dentist offices, few rooms of museums where you can see old equipment, taxidermy and others old items.

Coal Mine Tour
The first of this video I shot while touring an underground coal mine museum in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia back in 2008. The second part of the video was filmed recently in Stellarton, NS where Pioneer Coal is strip mining the old MacGregor and Albion mine site. There are five seams of coal here the thickest being The Foord seam at about 45 feet in thickness. All five seams have been previously mined via the old school method as described in this video. The song is a remake of Neil Youngs 1972 hit song Old Man and was rewritten and performed by Redlight King. Hope you enjoy the show.

Snowdown colliery abandoned coal mine KENT
We decided it was worth just have a look around this abandoned coal mine. Pretty much just empty shells but was still cool to see. We also found some underground tunnels, so gave these a little go. Wasnt too happy with the video and how the audio came out but it is what it is. Here is some history of the colliery. Snowdown Colliery was conveniently situated alongside the main Dover to Canterbury railway line, near to Ackolt which lies between Womenswold and Nonington. The Colliery was begun by Arthur Burr’s Foncage Syndicate in 1907, and the first sod was cut by Mrs Weston Plumptree. The first shaft at Snowdown encountered the problem many Kent coal shafts had experienced in the years previously: the shaft hit water at 260 ft and flooded. Twenty-two men drowned in the disaster. Despite this bad start, in the proceeding years there were few sinking problems and Snowdown became the first commercial pit in Kent in 1912. In this year, the first coal was brought to the surface from a depth of 1370ft on 19th November 1912. Two months later, in January 1913 the “Beresford” seam was reached. At 5’6” thick, this seam enabled 800 tons per week to be mined. In 1920, the Emergency Powers Bill temporarily increased wages for six months. The result of this was reduced pay for miners and thus in 1921 the Snowdown workers went on strike and the company went into receivership. The result of the strike was the colliery closed in 1922, although it maintained pumping operations so it could be sold as a working mine. The colliery was mothballed for almost two years before it was purchased in 1924 by Pearson & Dorman Long who had started a new colliery at Betteshanger. Pearson & Dorman Long completely modernised the colliery, scrapping the old steam winding plant and installing a powerful electric one. They then purchased a 600 acre site and a Public Utility Society, Aylesham Tenants Ltd. The company also built Aylesham village nearby, in order to house 650 mining families. Prior to this, most of the Snowdown miners had lived in Dover. Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke. - Credit to DoverMuseum The mine later closed in 1987 Thanks for watching Please like, share and subscribe You can find us on Facebook and Instragram Filmed on DJI Osmo in 4K -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Community care village Abandoned UNEXPLORED " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35rshufdyiM -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

The bed of coal and shale is raised up, the shale being heavier than coal sinks to the bottom onto the perforated plate and the coal is carried forward by the flow of the water. The shale being sunk to the bottom is elevated by the shale elevator to the storage tanker and is now ready to be taken away to the waste head.

A poscard from the past - the last mines of Yorkshire
A postcard from the past – the last mines of Yorkshire Barnsley Main The Barnsley Main Colliery is the remains of large deep mining site located in the Barnsley area in South Yorkshire. It is a rare survivor of South Yorkshire’s rich mining heritage. The buildings stand as a reminder of an industry that powered the Industrial Revolution and shaped the lives of communities. The site of Barnsley Main was mined for over 170 years under different names until final closure in 1991. Today the winding and engine house appear isolated but they were once part of a bustling complex of buildings. The remaining structures have been assigned Grade II Listed status due to their historical significance. The Colliery is known for being the site of the Oaks Disaster which took the lives of 383 people. Barnsley Main Heritage Group: https://barnsleymainheritagegroup.com/ Hatfield Main Hatfield Colliery, also known as Hatfield Main Colliery, was a colliery in the South Yorkshire Coalfield, mining the High Hazel coal seam. The colliery was around 1-mile (1.6 km) northwest of Hatfield, South Yorkshire, adjacent north of the railway line from Doncaster to Scunthorpe (former South Yorkshire Railway, or Barnsley to Barnetby Line) northeast of Hatfield and Stainforth railway station. The colliery opened in 1916. The pit was stopped in 2001 and restarted 2007; the mine passed through a number of different owners in the early part of the 21st century, with subsequent operators entering receivership. During the same period the site was proposed as the location for high-technology coal burning power stations schemes which did not proceed. In 2013 the major Doncaster-Thorne railway line which connected South Yorkshire to the Humber ports and Scunthorpe was blocked by a landslip at the colliery spoil for around 6 months. From late 2013 the mine was employee owned by the 'Hatfield Colliery Partnership Limited'. Due to lack of demand for coal products the colliery shut down at the end of June 2015.

'End of an era' for coal mining in England
They are calling it 'end of an era'. Coal mining in England is no more as the last deep mining colliery in North England is set to close. Coal powered the Industrial Revolution but the shafts have been going silent one after another as technology and global fuel prices put the mining business at a disadvantage. I spoke to the manager and deputy director of the National Coal Mining Museum of England based in Wakefield. See what he had to say.

Yorkshire mine probe
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. 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.

The life of a Welsh miner can, at best, be described has hard, dangerous and unrelenting. Yet there was a special character to the pit towns which made them different to other industrial settlements elsewhere in the United Kingdom. Valley societies were stable and safe places to live with an instinctive democracy and cohesion of classes, where individuals were respected for themselves and their own personal qualities. Featuring extensive interviews of current and ex-miners, period imagery and archive footage, this DVD delves into the often humourous but always proud history of Welsh mining.

Come check out this abandoned Colliery in South Wales and the Number 2 up shaft with me CollidingPlanets. Music by PLUG N PLAY https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTizabIZiASXACr9B0RxeZA The Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company maintained ownership of Penallta colliery until Nationalisation in 1947. The two shafts of Penallta colliery were sunk by the Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company in 1905/6. The first coal was raised in 1909 from the upper six feet seam and subsequently from the lower nine and seven feet seams. The number 1 shaft (downcast) and number 2 shaft (upcast) were 783 and 750 yards deep respectively. These shafts were subsequently extended to reach 800 yards in 1960 making it the last deep mine working in the Rhymney Valley. Penallta colliery was maintained as one of the most advanced collieries using up-to-date coal cutting machinery. 1930 saw the production of 975,603 tons of coal and the European record for coal recovered in 1935. In the late 1940's one of the first power loaders to be used in British mines, the Meco-Moore Cutter Loader, was installed which helped produce the 500,000 tons of coal raised in 1954. The 1960 shaft extension scheme included electrification of the shaft winding engines. In the mid 1970's 700 men were producing 210,000 tons of coal yearly. The 291 men employed in 1908 soon swelled to 1,920 in 1909. 1913 saw a slight reduction in the workforce to 1,281 men but in 1923, 2,395 men were employed which subsequently peaked at 3,208 men in 1931. 1947 saw a reduction to 1,934 men which reduced down to a mere 700 men in the 1970’s. Post 1984/85 The miners marched back to the Penallta Colliery behind their lodge banner making an impressive return to work following the end of the strike. Thirty two collieries were working in the South Wales coalfield following the 1984/85 miners strike. About a third of the remaining collieries in South Wales were then closed within a year of the end of the strike, the rest following shortly afterwards. Penallta was one of the few pits in the coalfield that was chosen to undergo a programme of modernisation, with £3.5m being invested in rapid coal-winding skips and a new heavy-duty high-technology coalface. In 1986 a major fire caused the closure of a coal face. Closure Penallta colliery was scheduled for closure by the British Coal Corporation (the statutory successor to the NCB) in November 1990. Despite this, by March 1991 the highest-ever productivity rate of 590,000 tonnes per annum of coal was being produced at Penallta. A brass band led the last shift of miners leaving Penallta colliery on Friday 1st November 1991. This marked the closure of the last deep mine working in the Rhymney Valley.
End of an era as Britain's last deep coal mine closes
It's an industry that fuelled a revolution and helped to create an empire, but Britain's last deep coal mine is closing on Friday - falling victim to cheap foreign imports and the switch to green energy

British coal: Proposed new opencast mine causes division
You might have thought that coal mining in Britain belongs in the past. The last deep mine closed a year ago but surface mining continues, even if the government is committed to phasing out fossil fuels. Now a proposal to open a new mine on a stretch of Druridge bay, on England's north-east coast, has aroused strong feelings.

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 .
