Monochrome Monday… Pit Wheel

Pit Wheel, February 2018Pit Wheel, February 2018.
Canon Sure Shot Sleek, – Kentmere 400

A pit (colliery) wheel memorial at the gates of the Midland Railway-Butterley site at Swanwick Junction displayed ‘in remembrance of the miners of the highedge district who gave of their lives in local pits and those of their comrades who for nine hundred years worked in darkness and danger to help turn the wheels of industry.’

Another shot from my first roll of Kentmere 400 film, one of three that was a Christmas present from my wife, the Canon Sure Shot Sleek was yet another charity shop find.
