Coalite Chemicals
Coalite Chemicals
This was the other side of the road to the smokeless fuel plant and I'm stood on a spoil heap overlooking the smokeless fuel plant. Beyond the chemical plant is Markham Colliery, Duckmanton.
Markham Colliery is also dead but was the site of an infamous overwind accident that killed several miners (11 comes to mind). This was the result of a failure of a critical, non-duplicated component in the brake linkage coupled with the driver losing any manual over-ride facilities. This led to a detailed analysis and an enhance programme of safety (NDT) testing of brake components.
