After reading your first post about Woodnook school, I think that your first name may start with an (R) and that you were a member of the school football team that played in the mid 1960s; the team that followed on from the team that I played in during the 1961/62 season.

Re: Huncoat Colliery

I realise it is the wrong time of year to mention this as it has closed now for the winter but while I am thinking on.....You miners out there might like to know there is an excellent mining museum in Burnley which is well worth a visit next year. Have a look on their website at Woodend Mining Museum > Home The bloke who owns it is only too happy to show folk round and loves nattering about the pits. He and his wife have done a remarkable job over the last few years. There is a little cafe too. Make a note and have a trip there in the Spring.

Re: Huncoat Colliery

I recently saw a signpost for this museum and wondered why7 I had never heard of it before. It is off a road leading towards Burnley near to Fence.

Re: Huncoat Colliery

That's right Bob. If you turn right off the bypass coming from Padiham down Greenhead Lane, at the very bottom of the hill turn right. there is a sign there for the museum. It is a narrow lane and the museum is on the right some way along although it cannot be seen from the lane. There is a sign though. There is quite a bit abut Hapton Valley. As I said it is well worth a visit.

It took me a while to find it but I think I get your drift,.

Your's Taddy.

P.S. I could also mistakenly have put this answer under another topic/title.
