We've Got Mansfield, Ashfield & Sherwood Covered

More than 50 large black and white images and an audio visual presentation are part of an exhibition at Mansfield Museum that runs from 9th January until 27th February.

Thoresby: The End Of The Mine, which is free, has been put together by Southwell photographer Chris Upton.
He spent a year on the project to record Thoresby Colliery, the site, buildings and people in images, prior to its closure in July.

It was the last coal mine in the county.

A limited edition book, containing 138 pages and more than 200 evocative black and white images, is also available.
The book, priced £25, can be bought at

Chris said: “The book provides an enduring record of Thoresby in its final days and would be appreciated by anyone associated with Thoresby or mining in Nottinghamshire.”.
