Hucknall pit pump lodge 1981

editorial image

This image of the Blackshale Cross Gate Pump Lodge was sent to the Dispatch from Brenda Wilkins along with a selection of reproduced pencil drawings from Hucknall Colliery around the early 1980s.

Mrs Wilkins, whose late husband Peter worked at the pit for many years, found the images amongst his belongings and wanted to share them. If you have any pictures from the past email them to: or drop them into out community postbox at the library with details.
