Whitley Bay Golf Course, Whitley Bay, NORTH TYNESIDE. A view of scrapers at work on a spoil heap during the restoration of Whitley Bay Golf Course, following the completion of opencast mining on the site.
John Laing and Son Ltd had started opencast mining operations in 1942 to meet wartime needs. The work was expanded by the company after the war and in 1948 opencast coal mining took place at Golf Course Opencast Coal Site in the Monkseaton area of Whitley Bay. By 1953 the mine was closed and the land was reclaimed

1950s Extraction Machinery Mining Land Reclamation Landscaping


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history, showcasing the remarkable transformation of Whitley Bay Golf Course. The image showcases the tireless efforts of scrapers at work on a spoil heap during the restoration process following opencast mining operations. During World War II, John Laing and Son Ltd initiated opencast mining to meet the urgent wartime demands. However, their work extended beyond the war years, leading to opencast coal mining activities taking place at Golf Course Opencast Coal Site in Monkseaton area of Whitley Bay in 1948. By 1953, as coal extraction came to an end, this site was closed down and underwent extensive land reclamation. The photograph not only highlights the immense scale of machinery employed for this task but also emphasizes the importance of environmental conservation through landscaping efforts. It serves as a testament to human ingenuity and determination in reshaping landscapes that were once scarred by industrial activities. Through meticulous planning and execution, Whitley Bay Golf Course was restored to its former glory after being marred by coal mining operations. This visual documentation from the 1950s offers us a glimpse into this transformative journey while reminding us of our responsibility towards sustainable development. With its historical significance and aesthetic appeal, this print stands as a powerful reminder of how mankind can rectify past mistakes and restore nature's beauty for future generations to enjoy.
