The Oaks 150 Colliery Memorial

The Oaks 150 Colliery Memorial 1866-2016 (150 years) are looking to erect a memorial to those who died in the worst coal mining disaster ever to happen in England, which would be seen as a monument of national significance and demonstrate that the living will not forget the past. This is fully supported by the NUM Yorkshire Area.
