Kellingley Colliery, 1965 – 2015


Kellingley Colliery was the UK’s last deep coal mine. It was located in North Yorkshire, just over the border from the West Yorkshire town of Knottingley. Kellingley Colliery, known as “Big K”, closed on 18 December 2015 and, the following day, a march took place from Knottingley Town Hall to the miners’ welfare club to commemorate the march.
