    Kellingley Colliery, Yorkshire - December 2015

    End of an era. An era which has been on the decline for a number of decades.  An era that made Britain truly great. An era that saw many prosperous moments. An era that couldn’t sustain itself. The era I’m talking about was Industrial Britain and the closure of Kellingly Colliery, the last...
