Fifteen new statues have been added to the ‘Walking Together’ mining memorial by artist Stephen Broadbent at Markham Vale.

The new statues supported by the Viridor Credits Environmental Company through the Landfill Communities Fund takes the total of life-sized steel figures to 77 and we continue to work alongside partners to fundraise for all 106 miners to be commemorated.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic it was not possible to hold a physical event to unveil the latest statues. Instead a short film has been produced as a virtual commemoration – see below. We would like to thank the Markham Vale Heritage Group volunteers for their continued support.
