This page is to acknowledge the contribution made by many on this website.

Thank you to Paul Gulliver for suggesting and organising the 2014 mechanics reunion, without which the idea for this website would not have been generated.

Particular thanks should go to Neil Stoessel, Bobby Defty and especially Derek Bowers for providing many fine photographs which help provide a valuable picture of what life was like at Dawdon. 

Could we also say thanks to samv77 for posting the You Tube clips of "Dawdon a life underground" and "Dawdon miners gala 1989" which we have linked to in our links section of this website. They provide a valuable insight into Dawdon life.
