high pit wilma :- The AFC is on the left,note the only colour we had underground,was our oilskins...oh!...
and the plastic sheeting put over the girders,only to keep the hydraulic pump dry..not for us..!...the silvery streaks left of centre,are droppers of water,the shutter was too slow to freeze the action.
high pit wilma :- What a really,really depressing hole that i worked in!
Didn't realise how depressing it really was,[because of complacency...],until the pits all shut down,and i worked in factories etc,with bright lighting,toilets and wash basins,and canteens....and the young kids i worked with,used to say the factory's were ..."DUMPS"....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
