A Monumental Day for the Retired Miners of Tower Colliery
Wednesday 17th of September 2014 12:48
On the 31.08.14 Tower Regeneration invited the retired miners of Tower Colliery to re-visit the site where it all started for them and their working colleagues.
The day saw over 40 people come to the now Tower Surface Mine Site, and how it has changed since they were working here over the last 30 years.The visit was attended by old colleagues, friends and family members to see areas of the site where they used to work.
The Visitors were up and close to old working such as the 5”, coal seams, old infrastructure like pipe lines, haulage roads and time to reflect on what will be a lifelong memory to them.
The brilliant success of the visit followed the Tower Colliery 61st Annual Retired Miners Dinner. Tower Regeneration Staff saw the high attendance, comradery and friendship this long lasting event still holds today.
