The History of Manvers Complex

Less than 40 years ago, the biggest industrial operation in Europe stood right on our doorstep. Join us for a talk from local historian Giles Brearley on the company and its operating history from the land being first acquired to the eventual fateful closure nearly 140 years later. With details on the social history of the miners themselves and the comradeship between the men manifested right from the start and how it grew in importance over the decades, the talk includes previously unseen photographs of the mining operations and its vast expansion.
