The metal inlays in the ground represent the underground roadways of 'C' seam worked from Vane Tempest Colliery between 1985 and 1993 leading from the two shafts descending, symbolically, from the seat.
"You were working two, three miles out to sea. You were nearly an hour underground before you got started"
"There were roads running all ways. Countless miles of roads. Add them together and they'd stretch to London"
