Markham miners remembered with memorial unveiling

Eleven new life-size steel figures have been unveiled as part of a memorial to miners who lost their lives at Markham Colliery. 

The figures were unveiled as part of the ‘Walking Together’ memorial – led by us – which will eventually feature 106 figures stretching between the village of Duckmanton in Chesterfield and the former pithead.

Each figure is part of a walking trail which symbolises a miner’s journey to the pit and back home again and represents the 106 men who lost their lives in 3 accidents at the site.
