Dave Fordham, Sb, A5, 56pp, 31 Illustrations

Originally known as Edlington Main Colliery, the renamed Yorkshire Main Colliery and the village of New Edlington were developed by The Staveley Coal & Iron Company as a partial replacement for their declining coal reserves at their older Derbyshire collieries. Under the dynamic leadership of the Staveley Chairman, Charlie Markham, the new colliery at Edlington would eventually employ 3,500 men who produced over 1,000,000 tons of coal per year. However, this would not be enough for the ambitious Charlie Markham who wanted the pit at Edlington to live up to its new name and become the biggest colliery in Yorkshire?
