HUNDREDS FLOCK TO UNVEILING OF AGECROFT MONUMENT
"It's a great honour to see this memorial unveiled, it is long overdue – God bless all the miners" Jean Barnes
Yesterday, hundreds of people, including around forty former mine workers, flocked to the unveiling of a new monument to commemorate those who worked and died at Agecroft Colliery, Salford's last pit.
Former miners, some carrying lamps and wearing original Agecroft helmets, unveiled the monument to the emotional sound of Besses Brass Band.
