Haig Pit

Strip Collage:

Each week, I will post a photograph as part of a challenge from the Daily Post – you are invited to participate. This week, the challenge is entitled, Collage!

Please show me your interpretation of the subject by adding a comment, with a link to your Website post, Facebook photo, Flickr image, etc.

This week, share a collage with us. It can be a collage you find out in the world — a grouping of flyers on a telephone pole, patches of plants in a bed of flowers, a parking lot checkered with colorful cars — or a collage made of multiple photos. If you want to indulge your inner arts-and-crafts nerd, make a paper collage and share a photo of that.


This week, I opted to create a collage from a single photo by splitting it into seven layered strips.

The photo that I have used is of the winding gear at Haig Pit in Whitehaven – a coal mine that was sunk in 1914. The pit closed in 1986 with a loss of 3,500 jobs. Today, a new company is looking to re-open mining in the area, with a view to exploit the remaining coal beneath the Irish Sea.

Arthur Scargill: All too often miners, and indeed other trade unionists, underestimate the economic strength they have.
