By David Bell

A way of life ended in Leicestershire when Bagworth Colliery, one of the oldest and longest running traditional deep mines in the country, closed in 1991. The mines may have gone but many of the men who earned their living deep underground still remain. The author, David Bell has met and talked to some of those ex-miners about what it was like to be part of such a close-knit group.

Courageous and resourceful, miners had a unique brand of humour and a deep sense of community born from risking life and limb. Comradeship was everything and this was tested to the limit in 1984-85 when only a handful of Leicestershire miners, known as the "Dirty Thirty", supported the call to strike.

In this book the miners describe their early experiences of working in the local pits and their day-to-day life, with the ever-present threat of injury, death or disaster. It is a tribute to their traditions and way of life.
