THE LAST PIT IN THE VALLEY – THE PHOTOS, THE MEMORIES, THE ARTEFACTS, THE FILM AND THE BOOK
The Last Pit In The Valley Exhibition
Saturday 21st - 28th September
St Augustine's Church, Bolton Road
Agecroft Colliery, on Agecroft Road, was the last pit in Salford and closed in 1990, largely forgotten until the Irwell Valley Mining Project unveiled a memorial in July near its former entrance.
Next Saturday an exhibition – The Last Pit In The Valley – opens for a week, and includes photos, memorabilia and oral memories of Agecroft, as well as the launch of a new book by former miner Paul Kelly and the premiere of a new film about mining in Salford.
