Ive been to the face here on a interview for an apprenticeship. And that without naming names, is someone who has helped me out no-end in the past. He seems very angry, but he is a nice guy! Honest.

I'm surprised to hear this, I thought Thorsby would be next in Uk Coal's "close a pit a year" plan. Shame, theres stacks of coal left there.

Headstocks at dawn then?

What a shame if it does close, hopefully it'll start meeting its targets again as theres shit loads of the black stuff down there.

I feel really sorry for the lads who work there, not only down on the face. The faceworkers are the only people ive seen doing the job, and its real backbreaking work, but every time ive had contact with them, they are such good lads, always having the craic and they live and breath the pit (whether they choose to admit it or not)

It will be a sad day when Daw Mill closes.

Tried it got on site and got caught by the security. We had to wait in the seccers office for the police the cctv system they have is unreal all connected to a massive plasma screen. Police let us go after searching us and my car. Closest ive been to a criminal record!
When was this?
