Thoresby The End Of The Mine – Talk By Chris Upton – 15th June 2023

Thoresby Colliery, the last pit in Nottinghamshire, closed in July 2015 bringing to an end over 900 years of mining in the county. Prior to the closure Chris spent nine months documenting the site, the buildings and the people and created an archive recording the pit in its final days.

This presentation tells the story of how the project came about, how it was shot and the resulting exhibition, AV, book and extensive publicity.
