The government has announced that it will not provide cash to help keep Thoresby colliery in Nottinghamshire open for a further three years.

In light of its closure, here are some facts about Thorseby Coalmine:

  • First all electric mine in the country
  • First mine to have fully mechanised coal production
  • First to have an annual output of one million tonnes
  • By the 1980s it was producing two million tonnes in the 1980s
  • Opened in 1925 by the Bolsolver Colliery Company
  • Thoresby Colliery brass band was formed in 1948, all made up of miners
  • Today only one miner is in the band
  • Thoresby Colliery Cricket and Football clubs still bear the pit's name
  • Thoresby is the last deep mine in the Midlands to close

It comes after UK Coal announced the region's last deep coal mine would close because it was no longer profitable.
