Another relic of a past time. An old colliery dram that had been placed as a memorial of a past industrial time. Saved and rescued from being scrapped and melted down only to be abandoned once more.

I was born in a mining village in Northumberland. My father, most of our male neighbours and most of my uncles were miners. The village was largely demolished in the early 1970s. Your post has raised many memories and made me feel very nostalgic.
