Lees Buildings and Seymour cottages. Completed
« on: Friday 11 September 09 15:54 BST (UK) »
Hi, does anyone have a photo of Lees Buildings in Staveley and any information as to when they were demolished please?
Also I would be interested in any information or photo of Seymour cottages also in Staveley.
I have tried the library at Staveley but drew a blank.

If you google Seymoor Colliery then there is the information about the mine,the village and how it fell into ruin.
When I was a student at Netherthorpe the cross country course went straight across the ruins of the village
Some of my ancestors lived in the village

Hi Brimboy,

Welcome to RootsChat, and thank you for your reply. I did as you suggested, it was an interesting read, and I also found a site about local history and mining while searching. oldminer.co.uk
Some of my ancestors also lived in the Seymour village.

I hope you find RootsChat as helpful and interesting as I have.

Regards
