14 photo memories to take you back to Thoresby Colliery
Thoresby Colliery at Edwinstowe finally closed its doors in 2015 – Nottinghamshire’s last coal mine in operation – and we have photographs spanning the 1960s to the 1990s in this gallery.
The colliery opened in 1925 and employed thousands of miners over the decades.
From record-breaking miners to the strike action of the eighties, these pictures capture many familiar faces from years gone by.
Have a look through and see who you can spot.
