Nedderton colliery houses

Carole

A small number of these colliery houses were built at Nedderton. This photo dates from the 1920s. These houses at Nedderton were later bought by pitmen's families.

The reason why there was a small number of these fancy houses built,wasn't cos they were for miners as such...!..they would have been for the Engineers,Surveyors,Clerks ,and Mine-owners families,just my guess,based on my experience of having lived in a pit terraced hoose wi an ootside netty ...right up until we got the chance to buy it..and that was in 1984...outside toilet across a yard in the middle of a freezing winter,in the middle of the night,brushing and wafting the forky-tails off the door and walls and roof,before you went in....in modern 1984....doesn't compare with the quality in appearance alone...with these houses!A think the arches above the windows,which have been bricked in,suggest they were a wee bit of a better standard than the average pit rows which were back to back,and completely characterless!!

Please correct me if i'm totally misguided!
