Memorial to dead of pit disaster
Memorial to dead of pit disaster
The monument is to the 74 dead of the Trimdon Grange pit disaster of 16 February 1882 - 69 were killed in an explosion and 5 others (rescuers) by 'after damp'.
The memorial is in an isolated position to the east of the village of Kelloe near to Church Kelloe where St. Helen's Church lies. The grave arrangement there is unusual with the church lying below a minor road in what is presumably a graveyard in which most of the gravestones have been relocated to stand beside a wall above the church and below the road. The monument here stands in an open area of grass with scattered trees on the north side of the minor road. It must surely, also have been part of the graveyard or of a separate one, as other individual graves and gravestones remain there.
