The colliery village of New Sharlston was a vital part of Britain's industrial and social heritage. This study looks at life in one such community - focussing on population, housing, religion, public health and recreation.
It is well illustrated with documents and photographs. Useful reading for all family historians with mining ancestors and for social historians interested in Victorian and Edwardian working-class life.
