Supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund through the ’10 Years of Walking Together’ project, we are delighted to share a short book and film which commemorate the 106 miners who died and also shares the story of this mining memorial project at Markham Vale, Derbyshire and all those who contributed.


The book, film and the ‘Markham March‘ (a new piece for brass created by Markham Vale Heritage Group Member, Ken Wain) were launched at Markham Vale Environment Centre on the 20th April 2023.

You can also read the Derbyshire County Council press release here. 

The book can be downloaded from or viewed on the Storymine Website
