Hi my name is John Lumsdon.

I was a coalface worker for 34 years, served in the Mines Rescue Service for 14 years and was an elected Workman's Inspector for 10 years at Wardley colliery, Co Durham and Florence colliery, North Staffs.

I became interested in mining history when I left the industry in 1986 and have contributed to this web site. I hope to continue along with the rest of the team.

If you wish to help, why not join us.
