David Clarke sent in this historic picture of the former Pye Hill Colliery.

Dave, from Langley Mill, says he’s on the picture of this group of miners. He’s at back and Mick Amott is on the right standing back. It was taken under ground at Pye Hill no 1 - Underwood the week before it closed. Pye was first mined in 1874 and closed in the 1980s.
