Product Description

Synopsis

Woven together using personal reminiscences, this is the story of the many mining families who holidayed at the camp after the Second World War, and of those who worked there. It is also the story of the union men who fought in the 1920s and 30s for a miner's right to take an annual holiday with pay and who made the building of this camp possible.

From the Publisher

Synopsis
THE story of Derbyshire Miners’ Holiday Camp at Skegness is the story of the thousands of mining families who holidayed there after the Second World War and of the people who worked at the camp, many of them from mining families and some former miners themselves. It is also the story of the union men who fought in the 1920s and 1930s for a miner’s right to take an annual holiday with pay and who made the building of the camp possible. It is very much the people’s story, woven together using reminiscences and photographs, and the result is a fascinating look at the variety of life at the camp and at the old mining community in Derbyshire itself.
