Tanhouse Pit, 'coil scratting'

Subject ID:
Subject Year:
David Atkinson Archive
Class number:
Tanhouse Pit,
1893. Image shows many people, men, women and children, gathered at Tanhouse Pit during the strike, or lockout, of 1893. The 17 week miner's strike was a time of great hardship, so these families are 'coil scratting' - collecting pieces of coal for their fires at home. In the distance Snittles Bridge is visible and the Leeds-Manchester railway line. Photographs from the David Atkinson Archive.
