wheres the underground bit ??
My dad worked there on the pit top, smashing lumps of coal with a hammer for 6 years God bless him
I WORKED THERE FOR 16 years until it seized production in Dec 93. My father was there for 42 years... my uncle before and after WW 2 and my grandfather was there at the time of the disaster in 1931. Brings back loads of good memories though. M.Booth.
Interesting video. It must have been taken soon after closure. I had a day trip down Bentley when I was a mining engineer trainee. I rose to Undermanager then left the industry in 1972. I worked in construction after that, 27 years in Hong Kong building the underground railway there.
it would be nice to see your footage.
ONCE AGAIN SORRY.I SPOTTED THE GARAGE THAT HOUSED ONE OF THE LOCOS WHICH WAS THE HYDRAULIC ONE AT 7.11 AND AT 8.38.
SORRY I LOOKED AT YOUR VID AGAIN AND INDEED AT 2.36 DID SPOT THE DIESEL GARAGE AND THE GARAGE THAT ONE OF THE LOCOS WERE HOUSED IN.THANKS.
my dad spent the majority of his working life there.
My Grandfather, Fred Harrison, worked  there between the twenties until 1940 ish. It has been an experience for me to see this film. The miners were treated very badly and were never valued for the difficult, dangerous job that they did. Janis
My grandad Bill or William O'connor use to work here untill that witch shut all the pits, he was the guy who brought all the men up from the pit
Hi thank you for putting this video on, My grandad was the under manager of bentley then moved onto be the manager of armthorpe, He was at bentley during the 50's/60's, then armthorpe 70's onwards. its rekindled some very fond memories for him, and I thank you for taking the time to put this video on, its put a smile on an old man as he's 86 now
