“We mined the coal beneath Nottinghamshire that powered our industries and kept our people warm”.

This site is not about kings and queens, castles or barons, lords, ladies, dancing and banquets in great houses. It is about the coalminers of Nottinghamshire. It’s about the people, their mining lives, stories, jokes, laughter and heartbreak. You will find videos, photos and audio recordings of the men and women we have interviewed.
