Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 10

An iconic image with huge symbolism; Norman regarding the telegraph poles like crucifixes, often at angles, with one such depiction even showing a miner hanging crucified. Norman commented that the men were treated like slaves and spoken to like convicts.

Walking into a cacophony; steam and shunting trucks as well as the colliery buzzer. Arrival was greeted by fencing made from railway sleepers guarding the initial passage into the pit yard.

He walked this route, three miles each way, every day for over 30 years, in all weathers, times of the day and all seasons; 2,500 men on the move, in three shifts coming and going along the Pit Road
