                A Wheatley Hill Pit Token

 

 

 

I received some new photographs of the pit from Roy Lambeth who received them from Billy Middleton. Billy had given Roy some negatives of photographs that were taken by the late Bert Henderson who was a member of the Wheatley Hill Camera Club. When Bert died he passed them onto fellow member Cyril Oswald who died recently. They are very good photographs and thankfully these Camera Club members have shared them with all of us....thank you.

          

I received the above recently from Allan Fulcher.
