Brief Notes On Accidents At Ushaw Moor Pit In 1950s

Deaths apart my grandfather’s old papers refer to two accidents at Ushaw Moor in the 50s. Do either of them ring a bell?

‘Middleton’ February 1957  and

‘Carse’ just before Christmas in 1955

    I do not know of these but the final person to be killed at Ushaw Moor Colliery was my Great Uncle, Lesley Holliday who died around May 1959. It is listed on the Durham Mining Museum Website. I’m assuming that you refer to the colliery…but may be not!
