Following the shocking government inspired premature closure of Hatfield Main Colliery, things have moved at indecent haste to sack the miners, and fill the shafts. We are very concerned that the next step is to pull down the
headstocks and bulldoze our history and heritage into oblivion leaving the site clear of any memory or evidence we
were ever here.
CAMPAIGN TO SAVE THE HEAD GEAR, AS A TRIBUTE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THESE COAL COMMUNITIES WHO TOILED, BLED AND DIED IN A CENTURY OF STRUGGLE.
RALLY; WAGGONS WAY, Stainforth, Doncaster. AT THE
ROUNDABOUT NEAR THE PIT GATES. Sat 25th July 10.am
We will not go quietly into that long good night- fight to save these headstocks in tribute to our forefathers and mothers to preserve the memory of who we are and where we came from.
