Mining & Quarrying

The Legacy

Fresh Memories

Period:
21st Century
Description:
The miners suffered a brutal defeat in the strike of 1921. In the aftermath miners' wages plummeted and there was widespread unemployment across the coal fields. This stone memorial to the death of a livelihood sits between Patna and Waterside in Ayrshire and is freshly painted each year by the descendent of a striker.
