Ushaw Dude’s Scenes Of Ushaw Moor

October 3, 2009 1 comment

The choice of the miners’ hymn Gresford is an excellent one; it captures the spirit of the place and the people. I feel humble and undeserving of the two photographs that include my image – because I did not toil in the Ushaw Moor mine. Neither did I, because of my age at the time, worry about the dangers to which my wider mining family was exposed. Over the generations thousands did worry about their family and friends.  As I say – I feel humble.  

Cloughy at this rate you are going to end up on a pedestal alongside Brian Clough.
