Within 35 former mining villages throughout England and Wales, can be found architecturally identical housing constructed in the 1920s by an organisation known as The Industrial Housing Association. This organisation was formed to address the urgent need for the provision of housing, particularly in the new coalfields of South Yorkshire, East Midlands and South Wales. By taking advantage of loans and grants from the Government’s Public Works Board and adopting the recommendations of the 1918 Tudor Walters Report, the Industrial Housing Association provided 12,000 houses for miners and their families. Nearly 100 years later, with the cessation of deep mined coal in the United Kingdom, these colliery estates remain as an example of what can be achieved by co-operation between public and private sectors in addressing a shortage of affordable housing, a problem that is still of considerable relevance today.
