Artist's Description

The gates are closed
Never to re-open
The crowds have gone
The locks are rusted

If you listen in the silence
You can hear the wheels turn
The cries and laughter
The work that has ceased

The protest are finished
The words have been said
Lives have now altered
But sadness remains

A culture has been changed
Now only history remembers
The lives that were lost
Only ghosts now remain

The closing down of the coal mines in England and especially here in Barnsley and all of South Yorkshire have left a scar on the culture, the land, industry, and on the lives of those who have been affected. Now all that remains of this historic industry are the skeletons of buildings dotted across the land. This is a photo of Barnsley main where much of my wife’s family had once been involved and worked.
