The Harworth machine

Alas, a visit to Harworth colliery in North Nottinghamshire came much too late, and it’s now a rubble strewn wasteland with very little to indicate it’s 86 year history beyond slivers of scrap steel and occasional piles of mining detritus. The one remaining feature at the time of visiting, an unidentifiable object that shall be remembered as the Harworth machine. It’s original purpose unknown, it’s future, a trip to the electric arc furnaces of China and the next wave of consumer goods no doubt.
