David bell, A5, Sb, 128pp

For this book, David Bell has met and talked to many ex-miners about what it was like to be part of the mining community. They describe their early experiences of working in the local pits and the harsh and dangerous conditions they had to face together. For most a way of life, which had come down from father to son to grandson, vanished in the 1980s. The 1984-85 miner's strike, when 27,000 Nottinghamshire men voted to work on while 7,000 came out, split families and caused rifts that are still keenly felt today. This book includes many old photographs, a map of the county's coalfields and a chart of the local pits also showing how many each one employed
