Mining Migrations

November 12 - November 22

Activities will be taking place both in person (socially distanced) and online.

Chatterley Whitfield Colliery still sits at the centre of the vast North Staffordshire coalfield, its derelict chimneys and winding gear a defining landmark for local people and visitors alike. Yet this was also a centre of global connections – of movements of people, things, ideas and innovations, and a workplace that linked local families to world commerce. Come and hear some of these stories – either on a self-guided walk around the Whitfield Valley Nature reserve adjacent to Chatterley Whitfield Colliery or via the website. Share what you think of them, and if you wish, share your own journey to the site!

The Information boards and QR codes for podcasts to guide you on your walk will begin at the Whitfield Valley notice board next to the colliery site entrance. After 10:00 on Thursday 12 November these will be in place and you can pop along for the walk any day throughout the festival. While not mandatory, you can sign up for this event to receive the weblink for the QR codes and so that the organiser can contact you with any updates on the event.

Information Boards will be sited on step-free paths in the Whitfield Valley Nature Reserve. Please note that the path will not be lit and therefore it is recommended that you leave ample time to complete the walk before dusk. Due to the nature of this event if you have any questions about accessibility we recommend getting in touch directly with the organiser.
