Markham Colliery.

Lamp Room Left Doorway and Left Building. Control Room Right Doorway and Right Building.                                   Lamp Room Frontage Left.

Note the wear line on the brickwork, this was caused by the many miners waiting to go on shift and having a chat and a smoke in the fresh air and their lamp battery, self rescuer and tools rubbing away at the brickwork.

Control Room now demolished.
