Well it’s been a bit longer than we said but we’re back!
Jubilee Colliery is one of the largest and best preserved Lancashire Coalfield Collieries. It represents a significant part of Oldham’s industrial past, with the Colliery a major concern in comparison to other coking sites. The fact that so much still remains visible above ground today makes the site exceptional.
From April 2014, Groundwork will build on the success of ‘Unearthing the Past’ to add to the understanding of the site and establish Jubilee Colliery as a site of regional historical importance.
‘Jubilee Colliery: Preserving the Past’ is looking for a team of volunteers to lead on the two phases of the project: Community Archaeology and Preservation of Learning.
This project will reach hundreds of people, providing a unique learning opportunity and creating a heritage legacy for Oldham. If you would like to take part as a volunteer please email your details Jo Fullman… firstname.lastname@example.org
