This is a quick cache and dash, but with the added interest of the memorial. Please do not disturb the neighbours, be as quiet as possible, the container is not on their land.
This is a memorial to all of the men, women and children who worked at Dexter Colliery, which shut in 1965 and Kingsbury Colliery, which followed in 1968. The wall is built of bricks, each of which has been bought by the families of miners who worked at nearby Dexter and Kingsbury Collieries.The miner’s lamp is permanently lit as an everlasting flame to commemorate those who have died and those who remember working down the mines.
