Re: Huncoat Colliery

I have no idea which pit my Great Grandfather was in but I do know when he finished mining he was the landlord of the Black Bull in Huncoat.

Re: Huncoat Colliery

ken lowes as far as I remember was a mechanic at Hapton Vallry but left in the 70's to work on fishing boats on the south coast. I believe his wife died and he came back to Accrington and restarted back at Hapton Valley. When Hapton Valley closed I believe he transferred to Lea Hall colliery in Rugeley. Incidentely I worked at hap ton Valley from 1970to its closure. i was one of the Surveyors (Dialers as we were called) I do not know where Ken is now but my reply about the photograph was to say that it did not depict Ken ,but an electrician called Peter Dunn .Incidentely the photo was was taken on either Dip 5 or Dip 3 .it was a retreat face.

Re: Huncoat Colliery

I knew "uncle" Bob, he and my father Jack Barnes ran their window cleaning rounds together during my youth. Although we called him Uncle Bob we were not blood relatives. If we are talking about the same man he was married to "auntie" Rita whose daughter was Susan (like myself). My father told us that prior to window cleaning uncle bob worked down the pits and that he wrestled under the name of Robert retsinab. I have photos somewhere when we were on holiday and Susan an I are riding around on trikes outside a caravan. I grew up knowing this man he was part of our family life.

Re: Huncoat Colliery

Any of you ex Miners know of a man called Herbert Daley. I have in my possession a badge with his name engraved on the back on the face it says LANCS & CHESHIRE MINERS across the top, below it says WELFARE COMMITTEE. There are also on the face two pennants either side of a Davy Lamp with the words Safety Badge under the lamp. How or why this came to be in my possession I have not got a clue, so if any of you guy's out there know of him or his family could you let me know, they may want a memento.
