Coalmining Representation in the Heritage Sector of the East Midlands

Coalmining Representation in the Heritage Sector of the East Midlands

M is for MACE (Full Circle Project)

MACE (Movie Archive for Central England)

The Full Circle Project is looking for old movie footage from past times which can be copied into digital form.  As part of the Full Circle Project I am looking for old coalmining footage from the coalfields of the East Midlands.  Already several useful clips have been identified and the first batch have been deposited with the Full Circle Project. 

The first batch is footage from 1992 at Bentinck Colliery in Notts and shows the demolition of the last chimney from the old steam winders plus the filling in of the last shaft at Bentinck  – the No. 2 shaft.   With the extensive work schedule this should be copied in May 2011.  The aim of the project is to identify footage which can then be used by community groups and educational purposes.

Anyone with any mining footage can contact the MuBu miner on 01773 760030 or david.amos99@ntlworld.com  or look for the MuBu miners Facebook page.

About this Sponsor

The MuBu Coalmining Project took place from April 2010 to the end of March 2012.  The remit was two-fold - firstly to see how the once vast coalmining industry in the East Midlands was represented in the Heritage sector and secondly to bring aspects of social media to that representation. The Coal mining project was funded by Renaissance East Midlands (REM) and the Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) at the University of Nottingham. The Bursary holder was Dr. David Amos who completed a PhD on the 1984-85 Miners Strike in the Nottinghamshire Coalfield. David is an ex miner, having worked in the deep mining coal industry at Annesley Colliery for 24 years.
