James whitehurst How has the closer of Clipstone colliery affected The lives of the local population? Introduction In this essay I will be writing about how the closer of the Clipstone colliery affected the lives of the local population. In this essay I will be writing about the various effects of the colliery opening and closing for example Low Church attendance. Also I will be writing about how Clipstone has evolved with the mine. Then I will be answering various questions for example, reasons why the colliery was located in Clipstone. How the colliery has developed Clipstone and how Clipstone has changed with the coming & going of the colliery. I will then show my answers with in formation gathered from the locals of Clipstone and will also be using mind maps and maps of Clipstone. The actual colliery opened in 1912 but only 2 years later it was closed for 4 years because of the war. It was then reopened in 1919-2004 and was one of the oldest mines in the world when it closed in 2004.

Another positive effect is that with more people coming to work in clipstone the area would become bigger and there for get better because if there is more people there is more money and better public places like restaurants, pubs, caf´┐Ż ect... However there were some negative effects for example there was pollution and deforestation in the area because of all the new houses being built. Effects on how clipstone has changed with the coming and going of the colliery In 1912 when the colliery opened the community sprung to life with happiness. When the colliery was open there were positive and negative effects on the community. Some of the more negative effects are that a lot of the people who worked in the pits got injured and killed and some would die early because of things like dust in there lungs and other infections and diseases. However there were some positive effects which were that the community spirit was very high and the colliery providing lots jobs so the people who worked there had more money to spend on leisure and luxuries (disposable income). They would also make good friends with fellow miners and would be able to by a good house with there wages from the mine. ...read more.


Another reason is because some people got depressed when they lost there jobs so they spend all there time and money in pubs drinking so they never go to church because they are always in a pub. Conclusion Overall I believe the closure of Clipstone colliery has affected Clipstone in a big way because when the colliery was open there was a lot of work going into clipstone and a lot of people in the area were earning a good living and had a lot of money to spend on leisure and luxuries so all the local businesses were able to make a good living and would not go bust because the people in the area would have a lot of money. However now the colliery has closed a lot of small businesses have gone bust or have debt. Also now a lot of people have moved away from clipstone to get work and Clipstone is attracting less people because the colliery has closed. However now clipstone is less polluted because the colliery is not letting off Co2 so the air is a lot nicer to breathe around clipstone. So overall I believe that the closure of Clipstone colliery has impacted Clipstone in a bad way. ...read more.
