The Passing of Deep Mining in North Derbyshire, 1984-2014
By John Bentley
This book is a collection of photographs documenting the last years of the deep-mined coal industry in Derbyshire and the subsequent reclamation of the sites involved. The photographs, taken between 1984 and 2014, document a fundamentally changing landscape. These coalfield communities will never be the same again. The photographs mark the passing of a mighty industry. The sites may look greener now, but a whole landscape and way of life has disappeared in the process.
