Clip one: Jim gives an overview of the mining in Morley through the 18th – 20th century. He talks about how in the 19th century coal was an important part of Morley’s industry. There was a surprisingly high number of collieries and mine shafts built.

Clip two: Jim talks at depth about Morley main colliery. He explains how it was state of the art in design, which today could be described as Heath Robinson. Heath Robinson is a term used to describe something that is over complex and unnecessary.
