Picking Coal At Lower Somercotes 86 Years Ago
by Parish Council on Wednesday 5 September 2012

This picture, also loaned to us by Mr Donald Miles, was taken during the 1926 strike, and shows coal picking at The Brickyard, Lower Somercotes.  Donald identified three people on the photograph as Freddie Millard, Ernie Miles and a Mr Amott.

Does anyone else recognise these people?  Were they friends or relatives of yours?  We would love to hear from you if you can identify anyone on this or our other
