Industrial Heritage Walk around Annesley and Newstead

Annesley & Newstead Collieries – Past and Present

 


 

 

 

On Sunday 18th November 2012, twenty-seven walkers enjoyed a four-mile trek around Annesley and Newstead in the heart of the former Nottinghamshire coalfield.  The theme for the day was the industrial heritage of the area and several significant former industrial and railway sites were visited as part of the walk.  The walk was led by David Amos, a local historian who specialises in coalmining and railway history in that region, and was in conjunction with Ashfield District Council and the Friends of Annesley Old Church.

    Hello Vicki – I have a collection of images from the Annesley region from the time I was Project Officer on the HLF funded Annesley Old Church Project (2011-2014). Have a look the Project’s Facebook page, some images from the Annesley area are on there. Unfortunately We never got round to populating the Project Website. It is still on a jobs pending list!

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.
