It opened as a museum display in 1979. Included in the display is the winding engine and a short section of trackway used to transport tubs of coal to the surface, and a mine office. Visitor access into the mine shaft is by guided tour.The colliery features both a standard gauge and narrow gauge railway - the former representing how coal was transported to its onward destination, and the latter typically used by Edwardian collieries for internal purposes. The standard gauge railway is laid out to serve the deep mine - wagons being loaded by dropping coal from the heapstead - and runs out of the yard to sidings laid out along the northern edge of the Pit Village. On the standard gauge railway there are two engine sheds in the colliery yard, the smaller brick, wood and metal structure being an operational building, the larger brick built structure being presented as Beamish Engine Works, a reconstruction of an engine shed formerly at Beamish 2nd Pit. Used for locomotive and stock storage, it is a long, single track shed featuring a servicing pit for part of its length, visitors can walk along the full length in a segregated corridor. A third engine shed has been constructed at the southern end of the yard (i.e. the other side of the heapstead to the other two sheds), also in brick (lower half) and corrugated iron, and is used for both narrow and standard gauge vehicles (on one road), although it is not connected to either system - instead being fed by low-loaders and used for long term storage only. The narrow gauge railway is serviced by a corrugate iron engine shed, and is being expanded to eventually encompass several sidings. There are a number of industrial steam locomotives (including rare examples by Stephen Lewin, from Seaham, and Black, Hawthorn & Co), and many chaldron wagons (the region’s traditional type of colliery railway rolling stock, and which became a symbol of Beamish Museum). The locomotive Coffee Pot No 1 is often in steam during the summer.Alongside the colliery is the pit village, representing life in the mining communities that grew alongside coal production sites in the North East, many having come into existence solely because of the industry, such as Seaham Harbour, West Hartlepool, Esh Winning and Bedlington.Miner's Cottages The row of six miner's cottages in Francis Street represent the tied housing provided by colliery owners to mine workers. Relocated to the museum in 1976, they were originally built in the 1860s in Hetton-le-Hole by Hetton Coal Company. They feature the common layout of a single-storey with a kitchen to the rear, the main room the house, and parlour to the front, rarely used (although it was common for both rooms to be used for sleeping, with disguised folding "dess" beds common), and with children sleeping in attic spaces upstairs. In front are long gardens, used for food production, with associated sheds. An outdoor toilet and coal bunker were in the rear yards, and beyond the cobbled back lane to their rear are assorted sheds used for cultivation, repairs and hobbies. Chalkboard slates attached to the rear wall were used by the occupier to tell the mine's "knocker up" when they wished to be woken for their next shift. No.2 is presented as a Methodist family's home, featuring good quality "Pitman's mahogany" furniture; No.3 is presented as occupied by a second generation well off Irish Catholic immigrant family featuring many items of value (so they could be readily sold off in times of need) and an early 1990s range; No.3 is presented as more impoverished than the others with just a simple convector style Newcastle oven, being inhabited by a miner's widow allowed to remain as her son is also a miner, and supplementing her income doing laundry and making/mending for other families. All the cottages feature examples of the folk art objects typical of mining communities. Also included in the row is an office for the miner's paymaster. In the rear alleyway of the cottages is a communal bread oven, which were commonplace until miner's cottages gradually obtained their own kitchen ranges. They were used to bake traditional breads such as the Stottie, as well as sweet items, such as tea cakes. With no extant examples, the museum's oven had to be created from photographs and oral history.School[edit] The school opened in 1992, and represents the typical board school. in the educational system of the era .

A lower than normal turn out at Crow Nest Park in Dewsbury was probably due to an inaccurate weather forecast. A fine day saw about 50 cars attend the Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club's informal event on 1st October 2017.

Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life
I haven't been to Summerlee since just before their major refurbishment, and I was shocked to realise that it was 10 years ago , As I was in Glasgow I decided to rectify this and pay another visit. The museum of Scottish Industrial Life is built around the site of the nineteenth century steelworks in Coatbridge. It is also the home of The Summerlee Transport Group who operate the Heritage Tram fleet within the museum grounds. This video concentrates mainly on the trams operating on the day of my visit, and briefly on some of the exhibits in and around the museum itself. Trams in service were Lanarkshire Tramways Company No. 53, Düsseldorf 392 and last but not least Glasgow Corporation Tramways 1017. My sincere thanks to everyone from The Summerlee Transport Group, especially George, Alexander and Innes for everything they did, It was very much appreciated. I am already looking forward to my next visit. A small selection of Photos from The Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life can be found at . http://www.mollsmyre.co.uk/summerlee-2013.html

This is a pretty special one, we've actually visited this place before, it was one of our first, so this time we took the old cam-er-rars to see what's what in the ABANDONED hospital of DOOM. Muck and needles galore this one, and our first satanic room find. Exploring the dilapidated ruins of civilisation, abandoned factories, creepy theme parks, military bases, and underground vaults containing the remnants of a by gone era. And with a bit of comedy and humour chucked in there too, can't be too serious about these things. Urban Exploring is not for kiddies. Abandoned places are dangerous. Adventures are fun.

West Lancashire Light Railway Steam Gala 2016
So far this year,for one reason or another I've not managed to get to any of the events I had been looking forward to attending. So It made a pleasant change to be able to get along to The West Lancashire Light Railway for their Steam Gala on the 6th and 7th August 2016. It was made all the more enjoyable when I realised it had been almost three years since my last visit, Time sure is flying past. Irish Mail, Utrillas, Joffre and guest Locos GP39 and Alpha were in action over the weekend. The Merseyside Transport Trust were offering rides around the local area on vintage buses. There was also plenty of things to do and see for all the Family. As I said before, This was the first event I've managed to get to this year and I was not disappointed. Even the weather was kind to us,although compared to Saturday, Sunday was a slightly overcast and a little windy. Once again the guys at the WLLR produced a brilliant event they can be very proud of. Many Thanks to you all for all the hard work you obviously put in for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

The Images Are Sometimes A Bit Jumpy,Because I Was Playing Around With The Camera Functions. The Other Reason My Video Is A Bit Jumpy Is Because I Was Holding My Camera,Whilst I Was Walking Around Using My Crutches.Being As I Have A Disability With My Legs. Also Sometimes The Vocals Of My Mum,My Auntie & Other People In The Video Are Sometimes Not Picked Up Clearly By The Microphone.Unlike Mine Which Are Loud & Clear Throughout.

Rev. Patrick Brontë's Biographical Letter to Mrs.Gaskell
The Reverend Patrick Brontë pens an informative letter to, Mrs. Gaskell, the first biographer of his world-famous writer daughter the peerless prose-stylist Charlotte. Since, at Mr. Nicholls' request and mine, you have kindly consented to give a brief account of my Daughter Charlotte's life, I will state a few facts, which, as her biographer, you might wish to know. For the gratification of those who might be desirous of knowing anything of me - I will, in as few words as I can, gratify their curiosity. My father's name, was Hugh Brontë - He was a native of the South of Ireland, and was left an orphan at an early age - It was said that he was of an Ancient Family. Whether this was, or was not so, I never gave myself the trouble to inquire, since his lot in life, as well as mine, depended, under providence, not on family decent, but our own exertions. He came to the North of Ireland, and made an early, but suitable marriage. His pecuniary means were small - but renting a few acres of land, He and my mother, by dint of application, and industry, managed to bring up a family of ten Children, in a respectable manner. I shew'd an early fondness for books, and continued at school for several years - At the age of sixteen, knowing that my Father could afford me no pecuniary aid I began to think of doing something for myself - I therefore opened a public school - and in this line, I continued five or six years ; I was then a Tutor in a gentleman's Family - From which situation I removed to Cambridge, and enter'd St. John's College - After nearly four years' residence, I took the Degree of Bachelor of Arts - and was soon after ordain'd to a Curacy in the South of England - Having Officiated, in two Curacies in the South, I came to Yorkshire - I was [soon] presented to the small Living of Hartshead, in the parish of Dewsbury - by my good Vicar. Here I remain'd for five years - The next five years, I had the Living of Thornton, in the parish of Bradford, in the County of York - From this I came to Haworth, in the said parish, where I have continued as Incumbent, during thirty-five years. Whilst at Hartshead, I became acquainted with Miss Branwell, a native of Cornwall - In due time we were married. In Hartshead, two children were born to us Maria, and Elizabeth - In Thornton, Charlotte, Patrick Branwell - Emily Jane, and Anne, were born - thus, in all, we had one son, and five daughters. In Haworth, my Family afflictions began - After a happy union of nine years, and only one year's residence, my Dear Wife died - and left me with the care of six small Children. Soon after my wife's sister came, and afforded me her assistance, for twenty years.

This was at one point, 'An Institution for the sick and poor'. It was established in the late 19th century.
