contents and extra information for this book »

It is sixty years since Frog Lane Colliery at Coalpit Heath in South Gloucestershire closed but memories of the colliery are still strong. This book takes a look at the history of the colliery; work on the surface and underground; the private railway and the social life of the colliers. The volume is lavishly illustrated with photographs, many taken in 1906, together with maps and plans of both the surface and the underground workings. Throughout the work are included reminiscences by men who worked at the colliery and by residents of Coalpit Heath and district who recall the impact of the colliery on life in the area. As such the book forms an extremely valuable piece of social history of interest to social historians and South Gloucestershire residents as well as industrial historians. This book has been published by Lightmoor Press in conjunction with the South Gloucestershire Mining Research Group ()
