EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial photograph, titled "Brodsworth Main Colliery EPW012843," offers a glimpse into the rich history of Adwick-le-Street in South Yorkshire. Taken in May 1925, this image showcases the impressive Brodsworth Main Colliery and its surrounding landscape. The colliery itself was established in 1905 and remained operational until its closure in 1990. Its significance as a vital hub for coal mining during the early 20th century is evident from the various pit head structures visible in the photo. The intricate network of railway sidings and coal trucks further emphasizes the bustling industrial activity that once thrived within these grounds. Atop this striking scene lies an intriguing sight – a radial housing estate known as Woodlands. This model village was purposefully constructed to provide accommodation for workers employed at Brodsworth Main Colliery. The presence of this residential area highlights not only the scale of operations at the colliery but also demonstrates efforts made by employers to create livable communities for their workforce. The clarity captured by Aerofilms' lens allows us to appreciate both small details and grand features alike. From towering chimneys to meticulously arranged buildings, every element contributes to painting a vivid picture of life during this era. As we gaze upon this remarkable print, we are transported back in time, witnessing an integral part of South Yorkshire's industrial heritage unfold before our eyes. It serves as a reminder of how industries like mining shaped communities and played significant roles in shaping local landscapes throughout history. This extraordinary photograph is part of Historic England's extensive collection, preserving moments frozen in time for future generations to explore and appreciate.
