There have been coal mines in Britain since the industrial revolution and for 200 years they powered the economy. In the 1950s there were over 1,300 deep coal mines. Today, in Kellingley in Yorkshire, the last one closed. End of an era.
On a more cheery note, today is my last day of work ahead of a two-and-a-half week break. And tonight Sam, Annette and Zoe arrive, the first of two lots of visitors. Great to see them.
