People and Places
This project has looked at 6 former mining communities in Nottinghamshire. We have focused on: Ollerton, Rufford, Blidworth, Newstead, Hucknall and Linby.
40 people, who either worked or lived in these communities, have been interviewed.
We have also interviewed a number of men and women whose lives have great significance to the history of these Communities.
This site contains excerpts from these interviews, together with photographs and stories about the people and their communities.
