About

‘Walking Together’ Markham Vale Mining Memorial Heritage Trail

The ‘Walking Together’ Memorial project has been created as a permanent reminder of the site’s strong mining heritage and to remember the miners who lost their lives in the three major disasters of 1937, 1938 and 1973.

The Memorial will include 106 life size steel figures symbolising the miner’s journey to and from the pit.   The figures follow a route stretching from Duckmanton village down to the Markham Vale Centre. Each figure represents a miner who lost his life and carries a tag with the name of one of the miners, along with their age and job role.
