Cotes Park Colliery Engine House Fire 1906
by Parish Council on Wednesday 5 September 2012

Thank you to Mr Donald Miles for lending us this photograph of the engine house fire that occurred over a century ago.  Mr Miles tells us he worked at Cotes Park from August 1956, and was still on the books at Cotes Park when it closed, and that the last coal turning shift was on 17th May 1963.
