Did you work down the mines or on the surface?
Perhaps you lived in a coal mining community? Why not share your
experiences with us, whether they be specific to Astley Green
Colliery and village or elsewhere in the Lancashire Coalfield?
Perhaps you have had stories passed down you would like to share.
Any information or recollections you can
provide would be added to our archives to ensure that memories
of life in the Lancashire Coalfield lives on, providing educational
material for schools and additional interest for visitors to the
museum. From time to time we will place a selection of these stories
on the web site.
Please send your stories to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Frank Seddon was a miner from Tyldesley who
spent most of his working life at Mosley Common Colliery. Like
a number of other miners, he would put his thoughts and experiences
into verse. The following poem is one of a number kindly submitted
by his daughter. Click here
