    Coal had already been mined in the Oldham region for over two centuries when commercial mining began in the 1730s and the industry grew into a major employer of local people. Written by a former supply lad in East Lancashire's last deep coal mine, this history of the coalfield which stretched from Royton to Bardsley combines archive photographs and maps with information on more than 150 pits and newspaper reports of accidents and mining disasters.
